This is mostly difficult riding as you round the bend, then it gets really easy for the west side cliff section. Some steep rock drops and sections of rock where you have to maneuver your bike up some steep punchy sections. The rock formations are amazing, and there is petrified wood everywhere. Even some of the cairns are made of the petrified wood. There are some amazingly fast ripping dirt sections to feed your need for speed.

       For me it's the best trail in the St. George area.

       Overrated trail. Pretty mellow ride and loot’s shifting gear due the small rock bumps.
      Some good views out there though.
      There is few better trails in the area to ride before this one. Would say on my list is: Dead Ringer, JEM, China Town, Hurricane, Grafton and Little Creek Mesa to name a few.

       Absolutely fantastic trail. I rode this and gooseberry and slickrock/mesa top riding doesn't get any better.

       So much fun with fantastic scenery. Find riding Holy Guacamole counterclockwise a bit better but either direction works.

       One of my favorite trails in the Hurricane area for its views and engaging riding. You'll be shifting a lot as you punch up and down rock rollers. There's also a ton of petrified wood on the side of the trail that's really cool to look at. If you ride Holy Guacamole counterclockwise you'll have a fast flowy descent but a harder time on the punchy climbs. I think riding it clockwise makes for a better ride. twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/best-mountain-bike-trails-in-hurricane-utah

       Extremely pedally with no flow. This whole area was disappointing for someone who wanted to go fast at any point. Kept waiting for the downhill part. I swear we pedaled up the entire time. I have no intentions on ever riding this trail/guacamole trails again. One and done.

       Super technical and fun trail. Lots of punchy climbs and the slick rock is great. Gets confusing to navigate at some pints. My friend and I put some cairns up in some spots. If you are looking for flow this isn’t the trail for it. Also super beautiful.
