Riders can expect to see beautiful pine forests and stretches of desert scrub. A few lovely lookout points and bodies of water make for fun stops along the way. The trail travels through Dixie National Forest, so make sure you familiarize yourself with their rules and regulations at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/dixie.
Street legal machines are recommended for Posey-Griffin Top Loop as it is easiest to start in town, and the loop concludes on paved highway. You can start in Escalante at the town park and ride over to Posey Lake Road and drive north until the pavement eventually becomes a gravel road. To visit Griffin Top and complete the loop you’ll be traveling through several intersections, so keep an eye out for trail signage and follow directions given on the signs.
There is plenty of lodging in and just outside of the town of Escalante. The town has every necessity between grocers and gas stations. There is also a Dixie National Forest campground if you’d like to camp off of the trail. Information about the Posey Lake Campground can be found here: https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/231916.
Street legal offroad vehicles were recently allowed to travel on county-maintained dirt roads in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and it has become extremely accessible for offroad riding opportunities.
