The Posey - Griffin Top Loop is a long beginner style ride mostly sticking to maintained dirt and gravel roads. The length of this trail, almost 70 miles, makes it an all day ride, but, due to road conditions, travel speed is optimal at almost 20mph. Riders can expect to see beautiful pine forests and stretches of desert scrub. A few beautiful lookout points and bodies of water make for fun stops along the way. The trail does travel through Dixie National Forest, so make sure you familiarize yourself with their rules and regulations at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/dixie Street legal machines are recommended for Posey-Griffin Top Loop as it is easiest to start in town, and the loop concludes on paved highway.
