Snow Canyon Trail

Snow Canyon, Excellent Ride

June, 2023 by garyhunter

My wife and I are from Arizona and we’re on our way to Lehi Utah. Stop in Saint George for the night and rode this trail next morning and glad we did! We rid our Catrike Dumouts with E Assist from Tawa pond where we parked and rode up to the state park. Where we payed 5 dollar to get in! What a Beautiful Ride on on a well maintained path with scenic views and as you gradually go up the canyon. This is well worth the entrance fee. What a great way to start a morning. We we be back to ride this again

Red Canyon Bicycle Trail

A pleasant trail

October, 2022 by 2barrittc

My wife and I rode this while visiting Bryce Canyon. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the large cracks in the pavement as others have mentioned. Just be aware that it’s all up hill in one direction and the altitude can make it challenging if you’re not used to it. We rode it from the Bryce City end to the opposite trailhead and back and I was glad I had rented an ebike


Bryce Canyon Shared Use Path

Very nice pathway!

September, 2022 by c2barritt

We rode this from Ruby’s Campground to Inspiration Peak which was mostly uphill. NOTE!! If you’re not acclimated to the altitude (8,000’) the climb can be challenging

Bryce Canyon Shared Use Path

Beautiful trail

July, 2022 by mlane14_99

This is a beautiful, curvy asphalt trail with a slight incline. We started our ride at the shuttle station in Bryce Canyon City and rode to the end of the trail at Inspiration Point inside the park. It’s nearly an all downward ride back to the shuttle station. There are many gorgeous pine trees and chipmunks to see along with a brief canyon view from the trail. Riders may choose to ride on the paved road through the remainder of the park for an additional 13 miles of do but the road has several challenging hills.

Snow Canyon Trail

Snow Canyon WOW

June, 2022 by jay_terri

One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. A must see for sure. We rode our E Bikes and stayed west to a forest road total ride 18.2 miles absolutely incredible

Pa'rus Trail

Great Easy Trail for Everyone

November, 2021 by rathgeber.max

Took this paved trail my first day in Zion. Was great with the baby and stroller and had great views and multiple chances to pause and see the river. It will have a bit heavy traffic but other than that it was great. Only hit 174 feet delta elevation change so definitely recommend for beginners, families / young kids , pets, just everyone. I can only imagine it’s the best warmup for the start of a longer stay.

Highway 18 Path

clockwise is the way to go

June, 2021 by aparrott58

park at the TH just outside the north entrance of Snow Canyon Park and you park for free. Travel southward on Hiway 18 and connect to the Snow Canyon park trail in St Geo. I tried the loop counterclockwise (i was lured in this direction by the stellar views of the Park. I should have followed the reviews tho). The hills on this path are over 15% - there are 3 of them. on our ebikes they were still a struggle. although there is one big hill going northward in Snow Canyon Park (entrance fee is $5 per bike versus $15 for car), the top 1.5 miles where you share the park road allows you to maybe hitch a ride with a friendly vehicle going northward (and uphill) thus allowing you to complete the loop and not push your bike uphill for 1.5 miles. the use of internal combustion engines (unless you hitch a ride with an e-car) is the way to go.

The crazy thing is that the path designers should have used switchbacks on the steep hills (there was room on all the hills) instead of paralleling the highway. At times it made more sense to bike the highway to avoid the hills (the highway hills were at a less steep grade).

Coal Creek Trail (UT)

Trail extended

Trail extended further up the canyon.

Highway 18 Path

Highway 18 Roller Coaster

November, 2020 by david.roderick.mclean

I rode this trail southbound in November 2020. The path parallels Highway 18 with adequate separation. There are some pavement cracks, but not bad.

The upper part by Snow Canyon are flat and benign. The lower portion is a bit more fun. The path does not follow the grade of the road but the natural elevations up and down outside of the road cuts. I call it a "Roller Coaster". Riding south is fairly easy, but riding north would be quite a challenge with some 10% grades.

I made a clockwise loop with Snow Canyon for a fun late-fall ride.

Virgin River North Trail

Nice path along parks, golf courses, River

October, 2020 by kellywheeler

This is a wonderful path with a gentle slope that is lovingly maintained. You wind along the river, by golf courses and parks. We jumped on from the south end and rode to the end and back in 1 1/2 hours. Not crowded — just a few walkers and cyclists.

Coal Creek Trail (UT)

Nice ride along creek

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Cedar City, UT
Parking: Large parking area at Veteran’s Park Baseball Fields, mid-point of trail.
Trail Condition: Wide pavement in good condition.
Signage: Trail is well signed with the exception of the area of Canyon Park, East Side. Trail loops over itself and crosses the creek, a sign is needed here.
Comments: This is a nice trail across the northern part of Cedar City and into Cedar Canyon along Coal Creek. Veteran’s Park is very nice and the ride up into Cedar Canyon is pleasant. There is a historical site along the trail at the mouth of the canyon. Another trail spurs off the trail leading to the south of town at the south end of Ann J Gardner Canyon Park, if wanting a little longer ride.
