Routes / Arches Nat'l Park/ Western Express?Colorado/Utah
« on: April 30, 2005, 02:18:24 am »
Hi, I need some route info/help from fellow tourers.  The Western Express, going east to west in sw Colorado dips to the south at Montrose.  I would like to go to Arches Nat'l Park in Utah without going as far south as the route goes. After heading south from Montrose would it be possible to go west at Placerville? Does anyone have any idea of the roads and conditions between Placerville going west on rt 145 into rt 90 into Utah on rt 46 by La Sal?  This route would allow a visit to Arches NP and the Needles area of Canyonlands NP before going thru Monticello, Utah on the western express route.  All advice and info would be greatly appreciated

I want to pass along some new info for future Katy Trail riders.  The county of St. Charles, Mo. has opened a new county park, KLONDIKE PARK, and it is right on (next to) the Katy Trail.  The park offers camping and shelters and cabins.  It has hiking and biking trails and it connects to the Katy via the bike trail.  Actually, the Katy goes right along the side of the parking lot at the new river access for boaters at the new park boat ramp.  It is located between Matson and Augusta trail heads, somewhere around the 61 or 62 mile post marker.  Hope all the trail users can put it to good use - it seems there are hardly any camping areas along the trail so this one should help fill that gap.

Routes / western express- pacific coast

I am planning a ride from St. Louis to Calif. and will pick up the transam into the western express route.  I may have enough time after getting to San Fran to ride part of the Pacific Coast route.  Anyone have info on the route south of San Fran? Does anyone know of transportion options from any of the smaller cities to one of the larger airports for departure back home? For example, Santa Barbara to airport (distance and what transportion is available).  Any words of wisdom for riding the Western Express?  thanks
