Desert Southwest (CO,AZ,UT,NM), Trip Reports » White Rim Utah


It wasn’t difficult to find a way to self support this short classic ride. Everyone I talked to said either don’t do it or pull a trailer. Yuk. One water filter later with no trailer and 50 miles of the best scenery a day made an awesome trip. If you are up for it, bring a pump filter and alum (if you don’t want to have to clean the filter every 2 liters). If you go clockwise you can hit the green river about halfway for your only close¬†water source at the potato bottom campground. This dirt road is too good to ride bulked up with gear, so it’s a good thing we travelled light.

That Green river really is a sand milkshake.
I hauled an empty 1 gal plastic milk container and let the water settle over night and filter in the mornings.
Hope you’ll post more picts.
