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

      Road up is in good condition. Did it in my Subaru Legacy. Quite a bit of vibration but no real clearance issues. The trail was in great shape. ...

      Great fun trail in great condition. Couple technical spots, but mostly flowy. Good ride for the kids too.

       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
