    So tell me about Cedar city to Bryce...

    So I'm planning a trip to Utah like I do 1-2 x per year, (I have done Moab St george Fruita in a variety of different ways the last five years or so).

    I am thinking of doing a trip to Cedar city/Bryce as described on the Utah Mountain Biking website. Would this be considered more shuttle type downhilly kind of riding? I noticed all three of the "must ride" rides (as per Utah website Bunker Creek, Dark Hollow, and Thunder Mountain) are all shuttle type rides.

    I love the riding in Moab/St George/Utah, but would love to do some shuttled rides.

    Any other recommendations for rides to do out there?

    Bunker and Dark Hollow are best as shuttles, neither is very convenient as a shuttle though. Other shuttled rides would be Blowhard, and the Virgin River Rim Trail. The VRRT can also be ridden a out and backs on various sections.

    I don't consider Thunder Mountain to be a shuttle ride. It's an easy climb from the bottom, and when you do shuttle it, you still have the most difficult climbing to do. Other options are to add in Losee or Casto and Cassidy Canyons.

    Another ride that's usually done as a shuttle is the Marathon Trail. It starts at Brian Head and ends at the west trail head on Navajo Lake. It mostly uses existing trails (Color Country and Lowder Ponds) and roads (Sydney Valley and Red Desert). It doesn't see a lot of use, so it's important to know where the trail goes.
