This is a really nice flow trail that has all kinds of fun little berms, little jumps, even a rock wall ride transition into a berm. Lots of speed and is a perfect way to stretch out the legs on your way to St. George or to hit up on your way home, or just in town. Right off the freeway, and looks to be the start of a larger trail system being planned (March 2016)

       What an amazing trail. I rode it today and wished I had more time to lap it repeatedly. It is the perfect mix of rock and groomed flow. This is a must ride trail in Utah as far as I'm concerned.

       Sweet trail. Nice mix of smooth berms, rollers, and a little bit of tech rocks. All of which are short. High fives to the people that made this trail. Five stars all the way.

       A really well down trail. The first trail I felt strongly enough to comment on, since Alsea Falls Trail in Oregon

       Very fun but short. Good twists and terrain changes. Pinyon forest.

       Been riding in Bryce and Hurricane for a week and gave Cedar city a whirl. Glad we did! Great fun flowy trails up and down! Just pure mountain biking fun! Hats off to the biking community here! This area has so much potential to become a big destination!
      Left some cash in the donation box.
