We had just finished driving Hell's Backbone and were ready to check out the Burr Trail. This rather easy road proved to be a very scenic route, with landforms similar to those around Moab. The red sandstone cliffs along Long Canyon reminded us of the drive along the Colorado River from Moab to Dewey Bridge, if not quite as majestic.
We made good time over the road as the first part was smooth pavement. There was little traffic, except for a group of bicycles along Long Canyon and a few tourists. We stopped for lunch at a turnout after coming out of Long Canyon and enjoyed the peaceful views.
We continued along the road, soon coming to the unpaved section. The road was smooth and well graded so we made good time. We passed our trailhead for Wolverine Loop and noted its location for our return trip. We noted Peek-a-Boo Arch as we passed but did not stop.
It didn't take long to reach the switchbacks, and even though the scenery was beautiful, we kept up our pace. We reached the end at the intersection with Notom Road and soon were headed back for the Wolverine Loop.
