Mountain Biking: Grand Staircase Region
Route: Sand Gulch / Paria Breaks
7.5' Maps: Eight-Mile Pass, Five-Mile Pass, and Five-Mile Valley
Distance: About 12 miles R/T; no steep elevation changes
Description: This route follows a road that offers a “back way” into the Paria Movie Set. For mountain bike riders, this is great because traffic is low. The route can be accessed from Highway 89. The ride starts at the corral, 1 mile west of the Movie Set turnoff. The corral area has plenty of space to park and unload bikes. The route follows the road out of the corral heading west for about 1.25 miles and then makes a sharp turn back to the east, ending at the Paria Movie Set. You must cross a wide wash to access the movie set.
