Wild Mountain area's beauty lies in vast rolling hills, lonely trails, and amazing views. Above, the stitched panorama shot shows the Green River Slopes on either side of the Green River Gorge (the deep cut is part of the well-known rafting destination, the Gates of Lodore). The highest point on the horizon is the distant triangular mountain, Zenobia Peak, 9000 feet, located in a remote section of Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado.
The above Google Earth view shows our entire route in blue. We traveled 18 miles and 4500 feet elevation gain and loss. (There were a lot of ups and downs!)
At our turnaround point, we were near the edge of the Green River Gorge, with the 3000 foot deep Canyon of Lodore below us.
We crossed from Utah into Colorado on this ride. See the sign "Entering Colorado, State Line." What, no welcome center? No restrooms? No free coffee or juice? I feel cheated!
