Gooseberry Mesa Professional Review and Guide

"Located about 39 miles west of St. George. Highlights: About equally split between slickrock and smooth singletrack, this is a varied and challenging ride. Long sections of trail follow the 1,000-foot rim of Gooseberry Mesa, providing spectacular views of southwest Utah, including the Pine Valley Mountains and the temples of Zion National Park.

The Left Fork road continues west from the trailhead most of the way to The Point at the west end of the mesa and provides access to the trails at several points, so you can ride any portion of the loop and then use the road for a quick return to the trailhead. Intermediate riders can walk the technical sections. Numerous large slickrock patches provide opportunities for riders of all abilities. These range from almost parking lot-smooth to extreme technical challenges. There are many unimproved campsites along Gooseberry and Left Fork roads; please use "leave-no-trace" camping techniques, especially with regard to campfires and human sanitation. Tread: 10.2 miles on singletrack; 0.9 mile on doubletrack."

There are now over 20 miles of trail. Views are sweet and camping is open on the mesa. There's even a bathroom! Main parking is 1 mile to the west of it. Expect a full day of superb riding fun. Dots painted on the ground make route finding easy. This is truly one of the most unique, fun rides on the planet. Elevations are 5200'-5600'.
