Trail Barrel
Actually felt like a pretty short trail so it could be paired up with Zen. The double track climb to the top was nothing to write home about so if you like more interesting and technical climbing you’d enjoy Zen more but the downhill on Barrel is a lot more fun and technical than Barrel. So if you want a little bit of everything you could pair the two and it would make for a pretty amazing ride.

My favorite trail in the St. George area. Plenty of fun tech at the top, with flow, drops, and gaps towards the bottom. If you like challenging features, you will find plenty of them here. It’s kind of like St. George’s version of SLC bobsled.

Nothing double black about this. Maybe a three foot drop with minimal consequences. I’d you made it down the waterfall, you got this

Amazing trail with fun technical sections. Take your phone for your map. The trail system out there doesn’t have any signs. So good luck!

This is a great trail. Some short technical ups, technical rocky descents, fast flow, and small and large jumps.

I enjoyed this trail more than Zen - the climb is significantly less technical and the descent is more flowy. The gap jumps and drops are not for the faint of heart but there’s alternate lines for everything. Time well spent!

My favorite trail in St. George, so far. It's probably a good idea to stop and check out some of the features on the first go around, or you could get yourself into trouble.

This section is very tame and has no jumps. Took it down by mistake and was very disappointed.

Thedescription says single track but really it’s an older 2 track with a more pronounced track on it. Very wide with lots of loose bits. Reminded me of a Jeep trail.
