This being my first Torrey will someone have some routes written down to fill my days when there? Or destinations within reach in a day ride?

There aren't any designated GPS routes or maps of rides that I know of, the kind offered or handed out... I've never seen them if they exist.
Great roads in the area. There will be different groups and one day rides. You'll enjoy what ever you choose, it's a great area!

The Gooseberry-Fremont Road to Hwy72 is an easy one day ride. The Burr Trail and Boulder Mountain another. There's much to do and great riding!

If you have time there are the national parks, Zion, Bryce etc.
How many days are you coming out for?

There used to be on this very forum about 5 "official" rides. How to access them, where they are, where the link is, or if the rides are still listed here, no one seems to know.

I don't remember the rides being posted here, but they were on Bob Palin's web page "How long to Torrey?"

However, it looks like Bob didn't renew that domain registration, so that page is no longer available.

On that page, there were links to Google Maps of those rides. I think Twisties made the maps.

I think the rides were:
Huntington Canyon
Fish Lake
Sweeper Madness
Burr Trail
Highway 12 to Escalante

I believe you are right that those are the rides. And perhaps that Bob Palin set up the link from the calendar or something. I wonder if they could bring those back.

Excellent, I'll get a map and enter these into my GPS as well.

I asked to be put on the wait list for a cabin or a room. Hopefully something will open up. Looking forward to meeting some of the people on this board.

Are these roads paved? If some, which ones? On my Garmin Case Camp some look like trails. Not interested in trail riding with my R1200RT.
