Eagle Canyon is a scenic drive in the San Rafael Swell. To explore this area, take I-70 to exit 116 for Moore. There is a rest area just off the highway and a frontage road that will take you to the trailhead. There are no services for about 50 miles around the trailhead so you will want to stock up on supplies and fuel in Green River, Ferron, Hanksville or Salina (depending on which direction you are traveling from). The trail is 50 miles long and we spent 4.5 hours riding at 11 mph. This is an incredibly scenic area to explore, so you will want to plan a full day for this trip.
