The southern approach profiled here goes along US285, since this is the most direct route. US285 is a busy 4 lane road, generally with a wide shoulder. Cycling on it is legal and (on this section) safer than many 2 lane roads, although the shoulders can be sandy in the spring. However substituting the Deer Creek Canyon shoulder summit, and South Turkey Creek Road for the lower southern approach is a better option.
