Keep the photos coming.
Thanks to this report, my wife and I went to the GC in November and loved it. Cannot wait to head back a bit earlier in the year and hit the north rim for some camping. She will paint while I get the bike off the trailer and go riding. Works for me.
Why not have her paint the trailer before you leave home? That way she can ride along with you.
Dave, thank you for this outstanding report, pictures are great!
I was twice before at Toroweap Point but in SUV 4x4, awesome place, I hope, someday I get to see all these places you had during your trip.
Love the tip on waiting until it starts to get dark to set-up camp! Golden! Torroweap was on my list of must-sees, now I have a whole bunch more and tracks to boot! Thanks for taking the time to put this up.
I'm planning on riding out and spending 2 weeks wandering around, and also taking in the Overland Expo. I'm hoping to take in a few of these locations!
Howdy, rokklym. You will see lots in 2 weeks. I look forward to hearing about it.
I also plan to stop by Overland Expo, possibly on Friday. Maybe I'll bump into ya.
I'll keep an eye out for your bike!
Well, it looks like you paid too much for the road! Other than that great RR
amazing trip, report, photos. your work on these reports sets the bar higher every time, for ride report & photographical quality. well done!
i hate that i missed this when it happened... but bookmarked like always. i think i bookmark every one of your reports to plan my routes in the future. always so well done, and i know that with my similar mediocre dirt skills, and similar bike, that it can be done!
Thanks for the new comments! I appreciate it. I'm currently working on the photos for my next RR...
Here's another wide look at Kanab Point that I recently put together for the first time.
Wow, what a great ride report, I'm off to check out the others now
A year late, but glad I finally came across your trip. Used to live in AZ and 15 years ago moved to OR, which is beautiful and all, but there's nothing like the GC and desert surrounding area. Thanks for putting all the great photos together.
Wow. Just wow. This was a beautiful trip. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Where to this time?
Amazing trip, no other words. Thanks for the link Dave, enjoyed this RR and your great pics. Regarding the permit, are you sure Toroweap isn't included? Because that's the only point we're gonna do and camp overnight with my friends.
Just as someone else said, fax and phone, are they trying to call the '80s orso :eek1 If it would be possible by internet I'd gladly ask for that permit and pay with cc. I mean, c'mon, it's 2015 ffs.
Things have definitely changed. NPS now requires a permit for camping at Toroweap/Tuweep. You can get one before your trip, or in person near Fredonia or St. George. Check out the new rules here: http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/tuweep.htm
There is a ranger station at Tuweep, so I wouldn't try to break the rules here.
BTW, I still haven't had the opportunity to ride the GCBAR again, or to complete the explorations of all of it. I wanted to do so this spring, but it's not gonna happen. We'll see what fall brings.
You know what, if I'm ever around that area, I'll mail you up front, we can ride this thing together ;-)
Been reading a lot about the area and roads. Seems like there's quite a few ways to Touraweep.
Was thinking of taking the wife with me (passenger) to the Bar 10 Ranch for dinner and an overnight: thinking it might best to just hike from there to the rim. Last few miles of Rt115 might be a bit too much with her on the back, and my 70/30 tires.
What's the easiest/less rocky route to the ranch? Or is too rough, and best to just head for the campground and park there?
