Google took me in on a short cut that saved 10 miles of dirt road. It was getting late and they were 4x4 roads.Image
I got a spot right on the rim.
Image
In the morning I started before sunrise and still ran into two runners.
Image
I did three out and backs from two locations and that covered the entire trail.
Image
I heard some shuttle it and I think that would not do it justice for how far out it is.

The view from inside my van.

I was talking with some guys that were on a mountain bike tour and they said I had to do Navajo lake Utah. So in the morning I will be there.
The rainbow rim trail is easy in both Directions and is mostly loose rocks. The elevation got to me making it a little harder than it should have been.

Navajo Lake is a blast but it’s wayyy up there so be prepared for the elevation. If he’s still there, there is a great BBQ food trailer at Duck Creek Village nearby. He open until he runs out of food only.
