Description: Leaving Buckeye Reservoir, riders begin a long climb up to the forested flats of the Redd Ranch. Much of this section crosses private ground so stay on the public access road and watch for fast moving traffic including log trucks. That being said, this section takes riders through some beautiful high terrain with fun descents and a chance to view far off mesas to the north as you approach the Kokopelli Trail at the intersection of the Gateway Road and North Beaver Mesa Road. Moab is still 30 miles away at this point.
