Ride the Rim with a Magpie

Have you ever wanted to ride the White Rim Trail in one day but felt limited by the logistics of being able to carry enough water, food and clothing? Well, here is your chance to let us handle the details and carry the extra weight, so you can JUST RIDE your bike!!! Join us for an awesome day on the all-time classic 80mile desert mountain bike ride around the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park. You’ll meet our experienced professional guides at Poison Spider Bicycles, where high quality mountain bikes are available for rent, the night before the ride for a pre-trip orientation. Early the next morning, the group will meet at the Start/Finish parking lot at the top of the Horsethief Trail on the Mineral Road. There, we’ll load into a Coyote Shuttle van and drive to the trailhead at the top of the Shafer Trail. We start this super FUN ride by descending into Shafer Canyon. Once on the White Rim Trail, we'll cruz the rolling terrain in a clockwise direction toward Murphy's Hogback where the support truck will be waiting. We’ll break for a delicious lunch and awe inspiring fantastic views of Canyonlands. We finish the ride by descending the north side of Murphy's Hogback, contouring through multiple canyons that feed the Green River, climbing over Turks Pass & Hardscrabble Hill and finally we'll climb the infamous Horsethief Trail to the Start/Finish parking lot at the top of the Mineral Road. Throughout the ride our guides share thier knowledge of the Cultural & Natural History in the area. Check out our Dates & Prices page for available tours. We can charter a date for a group of 4 or more. Call to book your next epic ride with Magpie Adventures today!!! * Groups of 6 or more qualify for a Group Discount!!!
