Let the rest of humanity scurry to and fro like ants in a glass box while you climb on your bike and experience true freedom while you propel yourself to a simpler time.

As you ride across the Parowan Gap, You’ll Escape by wandering back through time. You’ll journey with friends on sparsely travel roads. Experience beauty that ignites the fires of your imagination as it propels you through the ages. Imagine the gentle breeze on your face, your bike chain singing of freedom as nature serenades you. Smell the clean air as the sun warms your back under a crystal blue sky.

Riding the Parowan Gap is like taking a tour back through the ages. The Parowan Gap has sparked the imagination of many people including Native Americans, Spanish Explorers, and early American Pioneers. Its stunning petroglyphs—estimated to span 1000 years—depict stories of ancient life and Cosmic Phenomena that make the Parowan Gap an integral part of Native American Lore.
