Every city should have a ride like this. It’s close to town, (so close you can pedal right from town), it’s a killer little workout, and it’s a helluva good time. Ride Green Valley to get your fat-tire fix during lunch hour or to wind down after work. Or head out anytime you want to rekindle the days of old when you raced through neighborhood sand lots on your purple Sting-Ray decked out with monkey bars up front and a sissy bar in back. Green Valley is one big BMX course filled with thrills and potential spills. The names of four white-knuckle sections say it all: Three Fingers of Death, Acid Drops, Clavicle Hill, and Roller Coaster. If you miscalculate or push your limits beyond the envelope’s edge, you can easily ruin the rest of your bike season. On the other hand, if you are successful in proving your handling prowess, or just your lack of fear, you will be ennobled to a mountain-bike guru. But fear not, these are not mandatory stunts; each has a cheater route to the side. The route is not solely about cashing in on your nine lives. There are charming views of Zion National Park, Pine Valley Mountains, and Snow Canyon State Park from the route’s highpoint. Tread: 5.3 miles of paved roads, 2.3 miles of rock and sand doubletracks, and 3.3 miles of dirt ATV trail and singletracks.
