Virgin River Rim (Dixie National Forest) Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A multiple-day backpack along the south rim of the Markagunt Plateau, ending at Woods Ranch County Park, including an optional hike to Cascade Falls. Constructed to accommodate both hikers and mountain bikers (although motorized vehicles are prohibited), this outstanding trail links a network of former and current roadways along the southern edge of the Markagunt Plateau, featuring brilliantly colored spires along the rims and sweeping southward vistas.

Motorists may access the trail from Strawberry Point, Lars Fork, Cascade Falls, Navajo Lake, and the Webster Flat Road. The numerous access points in the middle of the trail allow hikers to approach it in sections, either as day hikes or as part of one extended backpacking trip."

This trail is for the climbing GODS, it is very tough, steep and only for the very strong climbers. The views are awesome and the forests lush. Don't miss Cascade Falls.
Be strong, very strong to ride here. Camping at Navajo Lake is chilly, below freezing in late May. Te-Ah Campground is beautiful.

Of the 40 or so miles of this trail I did, maybe 27 feet of it bored me. It was fast and furious from the get-go, challenging riders on fullies and hard-tails alike. Awe-inspiring views, zen-attaining descents through stands of Cedar, and the occasional flock of sheep.(That's right all you boys from the South, I said sheep!)... Go back as soon as you can, and try the Nevada Lake loop, while you are at it! Watch out for the Lava Flows....haha
