Author Full Detail Guide
Overview: Simply a perfect combination of slickrock and single-track riding. Also, you are on the top of a mesa with stunning views of Zion and all of southwestern Utah, none-the-less. The system of interconnected trails varies in technical difficulty, so you can make a suitable loop ride of almost any length for anyone from beginner to experienced thrill-seeker. Never a crowd.

    To mtn bike ride
    From St. George, travel north on I-15 to the exit for UT-9 (Hurricane/Zion NP). Travel east on UT-9 thorough Hurricane. In town, turn right on UT-59 -- do not follow the signs toward Zion where UT-9 and UT-59 split. Travel east on UT-59 for approx 14.4 miles. Turn left on Smithsonian Butte Rd, which has a Backcountry Byway sign. Continue down this road approx 2.8 miles and turn left onto Gooseberry Mesa Road. Gooseberry Mesa Rd generally has a sign now, but this is not always the case so keep track of the mileage! After approx 3.6 miles, you will reach a major Y with a bathroom and posted trail map. You can park here or go left for another 1.1 mile to the main parking area. You can also go right at the Y to the Windmill trail head.
