Little Purgatory Details
This is a 6-mile loop with 1000 vertical feet of climbing, located just east of Leeds (about 10 miles north of St. George). The loop is best done counterclockwise, with a climb on the Historic Babylon Trail and a technical descent on Little Purgatory.
This ride requires advanced skills. The climb is fairly strenuous, with one mile at 500 vertical per mile with a couple of tech spots. The descent has a mile of tricky rock that requires advanced tech skills.
I'd recommend this loop for strong and experienced technical riders. The loop is pretty quick, so it makes a good late afternoon "on the way into town" ride. I'd rate it both more technical and more strenuous than Zen, which some of the riding resembles. But I'd rank it just below Zen in overall fun factor.
