This six-day mountain bike tour offers a unique point of view into the area’s history. The Trail of the Ancients features archaeological sites and significant cultural and historic spots. Bike past ancient Native American ruins, climb slot canyons, pedal to Elephant Hill, cycle over Chicken Corners and embark on a 50-mile Jeep road trip through the Lockhart Basin, which follows the gentle sways of the Colorado River.

 

“The Canyonlands region was looked upon as nothing but a wasteland until the mid-1940s,” said Jared Fisher, director, Escape Adventures. “Then our nation’s urgent needs for uranium, vanadium, and petroleum products brought cycles of mining, prospecting and drilling to the area. These activities carved out most of the backcountry road and trail networks still in use today. But long before modern times, the Ancestral Puebloans developed a flourishing civilization in these canyons.”
