I would not drive 8 hours to ride these trails. As we started the 5 mile loop however, I thought, "This is exactly what I need right now." After a few days of quality riding and little sleep, the smooth single track with oh so gradual elevation gain was quite welcome. As we worked our way up the trail, I was thinking "This must be Utah's Mission Trails." The stuff is easy-peasy and could easily be ridden on a kid's walmart bike. The scenery was just enough to keep me entertained as the pictures reveal.

However, once we turned around and made the trek back to the car, the gradual incline along the buff single track that we climbed provided enough speed to really make it a blast! I highly recommend this trail system as an easy ride not too far from the 15 to break up a longer road trip or as a recovery ride after some harder days. :thumbsup:

I must have missed something with the ordeal. Better for me I guess.

Those trails look awesome, much more welcoming for the little one, who crashed and burned on the Mesa right off the bat and didn't enjoy her riding there.

The only shuttle I know of is owned by NASA. Otherwise, not in my dictionary.

I think there is some confusion though, I couldn't see anyone shuttling goose.

I thought it was just me. Those trails look fun, the kind you just buckle down and hammer on.

Thanks to this TR....I rode this and had a blast. I will never drive through St George again w/out stopping, getting a quick ride, and a bite to eat. This trail is a ton of fun! Fast and flowy. Would love to follow some local's down and see some of their lines as I bet they rip it. Could not stop the permigrin after 1 run down. Great little break 10 mins off the 15!
