so, i ended up getting the map. however, it looks like the route would be much more enjoyable if the route was reversed. the climbs would be spread out more...
I looked into this and here's what the route researcher had to say:The route was [planned this direction] so that the big elevation gain comes on pavement (east on 14 from Cedar City), and the big elevation
loss comes on gravel/dirt (Navajo Lake down the North Fork of the Virgin River). This is a great downhill, but I think it would be quite a gruelling uphill.
Is there any way to get reverse route directions?
At this time, the route narratives are not written/available for the reverse direction.
I hope this helps.
