    looking for kokopelli gps data

    anyone have it?
    can't find the full route on garmin connect or mapmyride.

    looking to do westwater --> south/upper sand flats road this weekend.

    solo, one day, ~130oz water.

    i've done mtb/solo/ss centuries with over 10k feet climbing before, but not in the desert. any ideas as to what this will entail as far as mileage and vertical feet goes?

    any other recommendations?

    thanks.

    Sounds like a fun ride. I rode the White Rim once and drank 200 oz of water and 10 cliff bars. Shoud I have done your ride instead?

    You might check out www.bikepacking.net. There are probably a few folks on that site who have GPS info for the Kokopelli Trail.

    I've found the route to be pretty well marked and easy to follow on the ground.

    130oz of water might do you well. I'd recommend carrying a way to treat water just in case you needed more.

    Good luck.

    I thnk this is what I used.

    I definatly would have gotten lost without the GPS file. There are parts where the trail markings point off of the road and your supposed to ride on the pavement for awhile. I am pretty sure this is the file I used and I rode from Moab to Dewey Bridge without major navigation issues.

    thanks.

    found it on wikiloc.com too, but now i'll have two .crs files just in case one doesn't work right.

    hopefully its not too windy and the ride doesn't kill me.

    ^ nearly killed me. didn't expect the climbs to be as steep & sustained as they were.

    105 miles with 12000 vertical gain. last 2 hours in the dark/snow. got a bottle of gatorade & water from some friendly hunters with ~30 miles to go, or else i would have run out.

    good times.
