Needles to Moab Canyonlands Tour

Remote route along a rugged 4-wheel drive road from the Needles past Lockhart Basin to Moab

Join us for a 4-day backcountry adventure in Moab’s canyon country! We’ll ride from the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park to Moab. With its primitive spirit and Wild West atmosphere, our ride past towering hoodoos and otherworldly rock formations through Lockhart Basin offers the perfect getaway.

This remote route loosely follows the Colorado River, along a rugged 4-wheel drive road that offers mountain bikers a fun and mostly moderate tour. Fantastic views of canyons, mesas, buttes, and spires, wide-open spaces, and solitude define this backcountry tour.

For those considering doing a multi-day tour for their first time, especially those who have little or no camping experience, we’ve written a detailed description of what it’s like to go on a multi-day tour with us. Click here to read it.
