Ut130 Cedar City - Minersville Summit

This low, slightly curving dessert summit is signed as a bike route. It doesn't have a shoulder, but not much traffic either, or rumble strips.

3.START-END NORTH:jct Ut130 - Ut21, Minersville


From South.
This starts out as a straight, long, barely noticeable climb. To the east a sage plain leads up distant Black Hills. Near the top the hills become a parade of miniature cones. A relay facility near the top is not much higher than the summit. There is a generic summit sign with elevation an no name.

From North. (described downwards) A long sweeping turn or two lead into Minersville. The top portion of this slope distinguishes itself with the presence of a few trees, highlighting neighborhood, dotting this neighborhood of aunt hill shaped hills.

Dayride with this point as highest summit:

Notes: I accepted a ride for the last 9 miles of this loop, after a double flat that was difficult to fix on the road, due to replacment tubes with too short valve stems. People in this area are so friendly, 3 cars had stopped to check on me before I got a ride with a marshall. Only unpaved section is the erroneous out and back parallel to I15.
