White Rim Trail Stargazing Trip

About This Trip

This White Rim Trail bike trip leads you through Canyonlands National Park, which was recently certified as a “Dark Sky Park” by the International Dark Sky Association.  We will not only leave our cares in the dust on an exhilarating and scenic bike-tour; but at night we will explore the Milky Way, see the Andromeda Galaxy, watch satellites and meteors, and learn constellations. With both binoculars and naked eyes we can open our imaginations up to the stars.  Additionally, on these Moab area mountain biking trips, we will also haul along a nice telescope to peer even deeper into the abyss.

WHITE RIM TRAIL HIGHLIGHTS
