Best Adventure Motorcycle Trails in North America

America’s diverse landscape makes it one of the best places in the world for adventure motorcycle riding enthusiasts. Riding season is coming quick so we decided to break down a few of the best adventure motorcycle riding spots here in North America. If you love the open road on your dual sport or adventure bike, this write up is for you. A few of these trails are even perfect for ATV and UTV adventures.

Mojave Road, California and Arizona

Up first on our list of best motorcycle adventure trails is Mojave Road. This adventure route stretches for 138 miles of desert landscape that has basically never been changed or touched by humans. This trail is dry and desolate and once used as a trail for covered wagons. Riders will have to go a long way between gas stations or convenience stores so be prepared and pack accordingly.

Alpine Loop Trail, Colorado

The Alpine Loop Trail in Colorado is a very popular trail during the summer months for adventure motorcycle enthusiasts.  This trail is based upon old mining roads throughout the mountains and has a multitude of side roads that stray off the actual loop trail. The Loop spans about 65 miles.

Dalton Highway, Alaska

Dalton Highway is a breathtaking motorcycle adventure, but definitely not for the faint of heart or beginners. This motorcycle adventure spans just over 400 miles. Roads liek this can be extremely trecherous to take on, but still the adventure of a lifetime.

 Magruder Road Corridor, Idaho and Montana

The panoramic wilderness views through Idaho’s mountains are what make Magruder Road Corridor so legendary. This road is a little over 100 miles winding through untouched and undeveloped land. This rocky, steep, and winding road can be tackled in one long day, but many riders like to break it up into a couple days. During the summer months this particular road is very popular for ATVs and dual sports along with more heavy duty off road vehicles.

El Camino Del Diablo, Arizona

El Camino Del Diablo translates to Highway of the devil, or Devil’s Highway. This trail winds across a 250 mile desert stretch of southern Arizona. Adventure motorcycle riders who decide to take the challenge of this trail will make their way through the remote terrain of Arizona’s beautiful and desolate Sonoran Desert. From the 16th to 19th centuries this road was used by settlers, conquistadores, and miners. This ride is perfect for the winter months because the temperatures soar well into the 100s from May to September.

Whipsaw Trail, British Columbia

Again, this trail is not recommended for beginner ADV motorcycle riders. The Whipsaw Trail in British Columbia is known to get some pretty serious mud pits but other than that it makes for a beautiful ride.

White Rim Trail, Utah

Pro tip: Pack your Sena device. Many of these adventure motorcycle trails are extremely remote for many miles at a time. Communicating with your riding partners can be pivotal, especially through rugged terrain. Also, do your research on any ADV motorcycle trail far before your trip. Many of the adventure trails above are extremely rigorous and should only be tackled by experienced adventure motorcycle riders.
