Wire Mesa is a brand new trail, completed in December 2016. It is intermediate by design with a few expert sections, all with ride arounds. If Guacamole and JEM had a trail baby, this is what it would look like

       Best trail we've ridden in the st George region.. Not difficult or technical but the flow and scenery make up for any shortcomings..highly recommended!

       What a great trail. Thanks to the guys at Zion Cycle for the recommendation..
      I was told to ride it clockwise, but ended up doing it counter..still a great ride!!
      The road up to the ride is the crux..

       We recently added some reroutes on the south side climb/descent. They are really soft at the moment. Give them some time to get weathered in and they'll be perfect. We needed to open up some sight lines and worked to eliminate some of the tighter corners.

       My Suunto tracked 700ft of ascent including wire Mesa access trail from west. Clockwise was great

       Fantastic trail. Ride clockwise for fast flows first and not tech climbing last bit. Ride counterclockwise for Ollie fun at beginning.

       Only 636 elevation climb total, not 1,400 like Trailforks states.
      Great ride with stunning views. Diverse trail system with flowy stretches and technical sections

       Beautiful Ride, took longer then expected. Was with a beginner group and it took a little over 3 hours went clockwise however every person that rode past was going counter clockwise.. I will be trying it counterclockwise next time. The rock sections will be much runner at The beginning instead of climbing them at the end. 4x4 or off-road cars are the only ones able to pass the last mile of dirt road. Enjoy!

       Omg take me back. We rented from Zion bikes, also got a trunk rack. They were wonderful. We opted to ride up/walk crybaby hill but it was sooo worth it. This was flowy and definitely not technical. The rocks are painted with white circles to show you a clean line, which kind of felt like cheating but also made me ride over things I never thought I could. Riding counterclockwise was really nice and flowy but the reverse way would have been nice technical practice.

       Truly astonished by the glowing comments and ratings on here. This trail is the definition of meh. Yes, the scenery is good, but absolutely nothing happens on this trail. Truly a beginner trail.

       Def not 1,200 ft - my Garmin put it at 735 ft. Still, a great and fun trail with varying terrain and beautiful views. Did this one counter-clockwise in dry conditions. Took around 1:06 moving time.

       One of the best (of many great) trails in the area. Not the most technical (Gooseberry or Guac) or the fastest (Jem) but certainly a good half day diversion. Head up and enjoy riding the loop both directions, probably
      best CW first. Then pull out your chair, sandwich and cold beverage of choice and enjoy the view of Zion.

       This is a great loop in Hurricane. It's a step-up from the Jem trails, but mellower than Gooseberry Mesa. It's one of my favorites in the area. I like to ride it clockwise because it has more challenging, techy bits but if you want more flow ride it counterclockwise twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/best-mountain-bike-trails-in-hurricane-utah

       Agree with everyone that the elevation is way off. And we rode it counter-clockwise and had a blast!

       Awesome trail. Rode it counterclockwise and had a blast. Views are unebeatable, lots of slick rock and techy features mixed in. Definitely upper intermediate skill level. The road in to wire/gooseberry is a joke, if you don't have 4 wheel drive, don't waste your time driving to these. Bike or hike to the head.
