This section of State Road 12 is what makes it famous! It just cannot be put into words, but here we go with a meager attempt. As you descend from Boulder down to the Escalante river, you will thoroughly enjoy cycling down the famous ridge at mileage 6.3 with steep drop offs on both sides of the road. You will feel as though you are cycling in the clouds. As you near the Escalante River you will pass the Calf Creek Gorge (home of Calf Creek Falls) on the right. Excellent views from a top the road down to the green bottom of the gorge are breathtaking. Shortly after climbing up from the river on the other side you come to a windy section of road that contours a rugged white slickrock. At mileage 26.1 you will pass through the town of Escalante and begin an ascent back into Dixie national forest. After reaching a mild summit, you wind down the narrow canyon and end in the town Henrieville, population 250.

Legs 23-24

What better way to finish the Relay than with a 4,000 foot plus descent into Ivins. Pass through the cedar and juniper-rich mountains south of Enterprise and then descend down through the ancient volcanoes near Veyo and past Gunlock Reservoir. If desired, team members can meet to finish the last mile or two of the course together. Note that the cyclist will turn onto Kwavasa Dr but the support vehicles will continue to 200 W and make a left turn before heading back to Unity Park.

Now, kick back and relax! You have made it and deserve a good rest. The finish line awaits with hydration and goodies!
