Nevada Route for Tri-State Dual Sport Ride

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to put together a dual sport day ride starting in Mesquite and travelling in a large loop through Utah and Arizona. The rough idea would be:

Cross over mesa north of Mesquite

Follow large wash north-east until powerline

Follow powerline to old hwy 91

Go through Beaver Dam Mtns and follow a powerline trail south to the Virgin River

Cross the Virgin river

Cross I-15

Go past Gypsum Mine

Go through Black Rock MTns and descend to Mesquite via Elbow canyon.

I have a few questions regarding this route:

Is it doable in one day?

Are there seasonal road closures in ieffect in late November? There are some lookouts over the Virgin River gorge I would like to visit.

Is the Virgin river crossable under the powerlines?

Is the Mesa north of Mesquite still open? I was last there in 2003. It appears from Google Earth there has been significant development since then.

Thanks for any advice,

That sounds sweet. Depending on the timing, I would be down for something like this. Keep the details coming!
