Adventure Documentary

Curbyside Productions recently produced this extended trailer of the Utah Backcountry Discovery Route (UTBDR) expedition documentary DVD.

The UTBDR is an 871 mile off-road route that starts in Mexican Hat and runs north across the state of Utah to the Idaho border near Bear Lake. The UTBDR passes through a number of iconic locations including Moab, Valley of the Gods, the Abajo and La Sal Mountain Ranges, Nine Mile Canyon and the northern Wasatch Mountains.

The route follows many low usage roads that wind through a number of mountain ranges and valleys, with a cumulative elevation gain of 86,996 feet.

The film, which will be released as a feature-length documentary in early 2012, is being produced by Joe and Flora Lloyd of Curbsyde Productions and will be distributed by Noren Films.

Additionally, a UTBDR map will be produced by Butler Motorcycle Maps and will be available before Christmas 2011.
