The Utah Backcountry Discovery Route, or UTBDR, is a scenic driving route across the state of Utah, from Arizona to Idaho, for dual-sport adventure motorcycles and 4x4 vehicles. This 871 mile long south-north route uses mostly un-paved backroads and will pass through a number of iconic locations including Moab, Valley of the Gods, the Abajo and La Sal Mountain Ranges, Nine Mile Canyon, and the northern Wasatch Mountains.
The Utah Backcountry Discovery Route (UTBDR) is a mostly off-road route from Southern Utah to the Idaho-Utah Border. The South to North route winds through remote deserts, dense pine forests and dramatic canyons. The roads include dirt, gravel, and pavement surfaces and may include rocks, sand, mud and snow depending on time of year and conditions. There are several alternate sections of the route that include more difficult terrain as well as options that become passable earlier in the season. The route is designed from south to north and is much easier in that direction.
