Stucki Springs Southern Utah

Spring in southern Utah is such a beautiful thing. Rode Stucki Springs today. I realized that I need to ride a lot more. This is a moderate ride with a couple of tough uphills where you will probably have to walk your bike. The downhill is worth all the effort of the climb.

Located near the Bear Claw Poppy trail in the Santa Clara Preserve. Total ride is a little over 13 miles. With an elevation gain of 1300 ft. The Ride Starts at the parking lot at the end of the Bear Claw Poppy Trail. The first 4 miles of your ride stay to the  the left side of the trails that people will be coming down from Bear Claw Poppy. This is your warm up for the uphill. I stopped and did a good stretch at this point to prepare me for the the real climb.

Make sure you stop a couple of times to take in the view. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the RAW untouched southern Utah. When you reach the summit you will need to take a break, adjust your seat level and take one last drink. The next 2 to 3 miles is wicked fun downhill, a total blast of pure awesomeness. Not sure if that is a real word but it is the only way I can explain how fun it is.
