This trail brings you right to the edge of the mesa, and flows over rocks, gravel with some difficult sections, but good practice for the more difficult slick rock sections. Riding this is surreal as the trees on your left move quickly while the endless view on the right is static. A must ride section to complete the Gooseberry experience

       No problem riding this trail back with lights in the dark. Probably made it a bit more fun actually. Great riding on the Mesa

       Stunning views the whole way. Trail is clear, no snow.

       This trail may be worth climbing but is somewhat boring descending. Personally I think the South Rim is more fun up and down.

       North Rim is one of my favorite trails in Hurricane. I like to climb it, but descending it is also fun if you're not into the tech over on South Rim. It has great views and some exposure. twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/best-mountain-bike-trails-in-hurricane-utah

       Fun trail. Rode it counterclockwise (north rim to south rim) like suggested and I think that was a really fun way to go.
