Hi all! This August five of us from GA and AL will be venturing out west for a ride through CO, WY and UT. We will trailer the bikes out west and we want to do a loop starting in southern CO heading north into WY and then back south through UT. We have 6 days to ride and would prefer to stay on forest service and other non paved roads. We will be camping each night.
What maps or sites do you suggest we use to plan our route? Also if you have any suggested routes I'd welcome the input.
Thanks!

I have ridden very little dirt in those states as I have always taken the bandit. I can say though that if you take 191 out of Vernal, UT and into flaming gourge it is quite scenic. DON'T stop on the bridge though! I have ridden some dirt in WY mostly on the Pilot Butte Scenic Loop
Wild Horse Tour

There are a ton of roads in WY so have fun!

Furkot https://trips.furkot.com/ and use the OsmAnd app on the phone for directions. I think you can even load it to Garmin GPS.

There's a little bit of a learning curve but with enough time it's pretty easy to figure out.

You also MUST make an account if you want to save a map. If you just start drawing a map and refresh the page an hour later, it's all gone if you're not logged in.

August is a tough time to be riding in Southern Utah, but the payoff is worth it. Happy to advise on southern trails and the AZ strip, and if you're in need of anything, I live in Hurricane, the gateway to Zion National Park and the strip. PM for info or when you're in the area I'd be happy to go over BLM maps with you.

I use a BLM topo map app on an old iPad where I download grids of the areas I'm riding. Combined with the GPS on my iPhone I've never gone astray. BLM roads are relatively well-marked and the maps are topographic and very comprehensive.

We used the Rever app on iPhones and it did the job. The app still has some tweaks needed for improvement but it and an accompanying set of paper maps was all we needed.
