General Overview of Trail
Utah, the Beehive State, is a land of stark contrasts, and those following the route of the Discovery Trail will get to experience much of this variety. The eastern part is in red rock country on the Kokopelli Mountain Bike Trail along the Colorado River, and through the Canyonlands and Capitol Reef National Parks. In central Utah the ADT traverses the heavily forested high mountains of the Dixie and Fishlake National Forests. The western part introduces the ADT traveler to very dry desert conditions that require careful planning for a safe journey.
