    Hi Guys, in the midst of planning an upcoming ride to the Canyonlands. Really wanted to visit the Needles, and hopefully making a loop out of it.
    Bobby's Hole is out of the questions, but on my Latitude 40 map, it shows another, longer, road that can be used to go around that section, right next to the Dark canyon, and has 2 difficult spots (marked by a little black diamond with a "D" in it)

    Problem is I can't find any information online so I have no idea if we should use it or not

    Would love to hear how hard it is, if it's doable after rain, and if it has a name so that I can refine my search for videos / info.

    Thanks in advance
