Zion Trail connects the Winter Creek Loop to the Sturtevant/Gabrielino junction at Sturtevant Camp that can be ridden in either direction. The front side (South) is a harder climb, a bit more dry and loose, and has some chunkier switchbacks. The back side (North of Zion Peak) is more typical "Darkside" dirt, narrower singletrack with some decent exposure. Both sides drop down from Mt. Zion.
