The Monticello Utah Loop is a small loop with a side trip to Big Spring Canyon Overlook.  Starting in Monticello, Utah, this loop heads North across the desert into a low canyon before emerging into the desert again.  Upon reaching Church Rock, the path turns West toward Big Spring Canyon Overlook.  Along this twisty stretch riders can take in the history and natural beauty of Newspaper Rock, Donnelly Canyon and Six Shooter Peaks.


After taking in the sights, this ride backtracks toward Church Rock, but then turns off onto North Creek Lane for a twisty ride back to the starting point in Monticello.
