Cathedral Valley Loop
Cathedral Valley Loop information
Lonely Planet review
Long-distance mountain bikers and 4WDers love this 58-mile route through Cathedral Valley, starting 18.6 miles east of the visitor center. The bumpy, roughshod backcountry road explores the remote northern area of the park and its alien desert landscapes, pierced by giant sandstone monoliths eroded into fantastic shapes. Before starting, check conditions at the visitor center and purchase an interpretive route guide.
