Where to go Motorcycling
Zion-Mt. Carmel Road
There may be few roads as pretty as this drive, quickly descending from the East Entrance into Zion Canyon on Highway 9, with the entire canyon stretched out in front of you. Traffic, however, is a significant issue on this route, so consider an alternate route if going in the summer.
Kolob Terrace Road
Heading north from the town of Virgin, this road passes numerous vistas, including Lava Point, where the entire Zion National Park is visible. Continuing on, the road passes Kolob Reservoir and up to Dixie National Forest. The gravel road is well-maintained.
State Highway 18
From St. George, motorcycle riders should take UT-18 as far north as possible, because it's all beautiful. Passing through Snow Canyon then on up into the Pine Valley Mountains, this route give great views of Signal Mountain, desert landscapes and dormant lava flows.
Old Highway 91
Heading west from St. George, this route starts as W. Sunset Blvd, passes Ivins, and then opens up for a 30-mile stretch to Littlefield, AZ. The only thing on this road is miles of pavement through an incredible desert landscape of plateaus, bluffs and cliffs.
