    I think your versys would have been more than capable continuing on to the dirt part of burr trail. The switchbacks are awesome. And there’s a nice restaurant when you get to the bottom.

    Agreed... I rode the dirt leg to the pavement on 276 then crossed Powell on a ferry at Bullfrog and then pedaled 95 to Fry Canyon Lodge for the night. On a bicycle in 1997. It would have been much easier on the Versys.

    Interesting read/nice pics. Merced folks must be pretty refined.

    Burr trail is easy.
    If you come in from the North from Hanksville there is some sand - not much
    From the South is really easy you can take a 2 wheel drive car on it. Great views.
    In the first picture the Burr Trail comes in from the right at the 3 way intersection.

    In Boulder eat at Burr Trail Grill.

    And of course you have to ride onto Escalante. Good ride have fun.
