The Aquarius Trail Hut System claims to offer a backcountry mountain biking experience like no other in the region.
The 190-mile route goes through some of Utah’s most scenic backcountry – claiming some impressive peaks – including Brian Head at 11,307 feet and the beautiful town of Escalante at 5,820 feet.
This route covers a section of Utah called “Color Country” and includes many well-known attractions such as Powell Point, Bryce Canyon National Park, Brianhead Ski Resort, Red Canyon, Aquarius Plateau, Dixie National Forest, the Hogback, Escalante National Monument and much more.
Self-guided trips are available July-October and group rates start at £712 per person for 6-days/5-nights. Escape Adventures offers guided tours starting at £1500 per person. Shorter trips are also available.
The Aquarius Trail Hut System provides a luxury bikepacking experience, complete with showers, solar power for charging electronic devices, fully stocked kitchens with a refrigerator and freezer, lighting, hammocks, large decks, bathroom facilities, bicycle repair tools and stands, playing cards, fire pit and cosy sleeping arrangements.
Riders enjoy singletrack, challenging jeep tracks, dirt roads, hidden lakes, and spectacular vistas. E-bikes are allowed at each hut so groups of mixed abilities can enjoy the same adventure.
"These unique huts were built using repurposed high-top shipping containers", said Jared Fisher, Founder & Director of Escape Adventures. "They are spaced approximately 30 to 40 miles apart and accommodate 12 to 14 riders."
On a six-day itinerary, the average distance per day is between 35 to 40 miles of riding and 3,500 feet of elevation gain.
