I had attempted this passage a few days before but my mission was thwarted due to two flat tires near Moqui Stage Station. The good news is that I met a kind woman who helped me after I knocked on her door. She would also help me on this trip with a shuttle back to the southern terminus.

I had low expectations for this passage as it seems to be the least favorite of all the sections from those who have traveled it. It follows a dirt road for nearly 20 miles and then goes to a single track upon reaching the Kaibab National Forest boundary.

The terrain isn't bad just kind of barren. I still found goodness in that it provided me with some solitude and some much needed time to collect my thoughts. Once you hit the forest boundary the landscape improves and is much more visually interesting.

I reached Moqui Stage Station early and my ride was already there waiting. If you should take a passenger car to the northern trailhead just be very careful driving as those rocks are sharp!
