Late April: East Canyon and Echo

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 10.53.38 PMThis is a nice little ride that’s great for a Saturday afternoon when the mountain passes are still too sketchy to ride. For some reason, I don’t hit this ride very often, but I always enjoy it. From 89 head up Weber Canyon on I-84 and exit at Peterson.

We stopped there to turn the cameras on before heading to East Canyon. Once you hit the reservoir, in the summer you can hang a right and make the climb over Big Mountain and drop down on Parley’s Canyon, but today we took a left toward Henefer and on to Echo and Coalville.

You’ll need to jump back on I-84 for a few minutes and don’t be tempted to head west on I-80 at the junction. Take the left for 1/4 mile and exit at Echo and follow a little stretch of the old Lincoln Highway through Coalville to Wanship. You’ll be glad you did.

I hope you enjoy the video. Sometimes you’re just in the mood for a tango.
