Great ride! I do this at least once a week during Summer. Got to stop at the top of Emigration Rd for a view of Dell Reservoir. Then go on to East Canyon Rd for great corners and another stop at at the Morgan County Line for an amazing photo oportunity of the mountain valleys below.
Must stop at Historic Morgan Ut. For great eats and a Biker hang-out @ Kellys.

Love this ride. Takes me back to college days. A beautiful day ride up Emigration Canyon. The drop into East Canyon amazing, worth pulling out at the summit before the drop and taking in the view.
