Virgin River Trail

The trail has been completed and open south of Sullivan Park all the way through. No more detour on Riverside. Beautiful new section with new boardwalks and pleasant scenery and river. The wait is over and we are happy!

Fort Pearce Wash Trail

Short Loop

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St. George, UT
Parking: Crosby Family Confluence Park
Trail Condition: Wide and smooth.
Signage: We rode several trails on this ride and all had really good route direction signage and some informational signs. St. George has done a great job with their trail system, other communities should take note.
Comments: We picked up a 2019 St. George Park & Trail System Map & Guide. The updated guide shows current trail info. This trail really is just a short (0.3 mi) loop starting at St. James Park. The map on TrailLink is incorrect, that shows the trail as part of the Virgin River South Trail and Larkspur Trail. Not really much to say about this short loop. Good trail surface and a short diversion off the main Virgin River South Trail.

Middleton Wash Trail

Great Trail Through the Wash

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St. George, UT
Parking: Crosby Family Confluence Park
Trail Condition: Wide asphalt and smooth. A couple repaired sections but still smooth.
Signage: We rode several trails on this ride and all had really good route direction signage and some informational signs. St. George has done a great job with their trail system, other communities should take note.
Comments: We rode this trail from the Virgin River North Trail. As the name implies it follows along Middleton Wash, which offers a riparian experience and a feeling of being away from the city but really aren’t. From the Virgin River North Trail this trail is uphill with a few short climbs here and there. There is a short boardwalk section. The trail is a delight and worth the diversion. Overall we really enjoyed all the trails and the scenery the St. George trail system had to offer. The trails are very popular with many folks (walkers & bikers) on them. People were friendly and offered a wave or hello.

Virgin River South Trail

Do This One

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St. George, UT
Parking: Crosby Family Confluence Park
Trail Condition: Wide asphalt and smooth. Great shape. South end of trail from Man O War bridge south is closed and under construction until April with new asphalt being laid, etc.
Signage: We rode several trails on this ride and all had really good route direction signage and some informational signs. St. George has done a great job with their trail system, other communities should take note.
Comments: We picked up a 2019 St. George Park & Trail System Map & Guide. The updated guide shows current trail info. We started our ride on the Virgin River North Trail and connected to this trail at the really nice trail bridge at River Road. Per the St. George trail map the trail does go further north but we opted for the southern route and followed it to eventually reconnect with the Virgin River North Trail. This trail picks up again at the southern end of the Virgin River North Trail. That part of the trail is under construction, as mentioned above. A portion of this trail is part of the Mayor’s Loop (5.3 miles). These trails have underpasses when major streets are encountered and a number of trail bridges. There are a couple spur options off of this trail for more riding options. The trail goes through St. James park, very nice park with clean restrooms. Overall we really enjoyed all the trails and the scenery the St. George trail system had to offer. The trails are very popular with many folks (walkers & bikers) on them.

Virgin River Trail

Do This Trail

March, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St. George, UT
Parking: Crosby Family Confluence Park
Trail Condition: From parking north asphalt smooth and wide. The southern section is a much older trail and has been crack sealed many times, making a bumpier ride. Not bone shattering but not completely smooth.
Signage: We rode several trails on this ride and all had really good route direction signage and some informational signs. St. George has done a great job with their trail system, other communities should take note.
Comments: We picked up a 2019 St. George Park & Trail System Map & Guide. The updated guide shows this trail is now the Virgin River North Trail. On the north end of the trail there is a detour just short of Fossil Falls Park. We turned around here. TrailLink map shows the trail having a break before reconnecting to the northern end of trail past the park. St. George map shows the trail continuing as a “Multi-Use Paved Trail” and on to Washington. The south end of the trail ends at the Man O War bridge. TrailLink indicates the trail continues on the south side of the river after crossing the bridge. This further southern section is now part of the Virgin River South Trail, per the St. George map. St. George seems to have active trail building efforts on going with the detour at the north end of trail and Virgin River South Trail closed (fresh asphalt) from the Man O Bridge south. A portion of this trail is part of the Mayor’s Loop (5.3 miles). These trails have underpasses when major streets are encountered and a number of trail bridges. Overall we really enjoyed all the trails and the scenery the St. George trail system had to offer. The trails are very popular with many folks (walkers & bikers) on them.

Pa'rus Trail

Easy trail for families with small children

July, 2019 by lvfunnyfarm

Nice nature walk in a stunning location

Virgin River Trail

a lot of additions

September, 2018 by elj317

Traveling around the Southwest. Read the reviews on this trail. Not too impressive but decided to give it a try. What a surprise!!! A massive amount of work has been done-a lot of trail added. i can't even name the additions since I am only passing through. Suffice to say , I did 30 miles and could have done a lot more. A lot of the trail system is brand new. All new parks and facilities. Fantastic!!! Like the best trails in any state. Brand new-clean facilities. Absolutely immaculate trail system. They had some additions closed for the on going work. Great maps and directional info at every intersection. Kudos to Washington and St. George , Utah

Red Canyon Bicycle Trail

Great place for a camping and biking weekend!

August, 2018 by ryanreason

My friends and I enjoy riding the paved trails around our hometown on the weekends and we also enjoy a little camping. In my search to find a way to combine these two passions, I found Red Canyon Campground here on traillink.com. Reading the reviews helped me get a feel for what to expect, so we found a weekend and headed up for a bike-centric camping break from the summer heat.

We arrived after lunch on Friday and had plenty of spacious spots to choose from. We found the perfect one with plenty of shade, trees spaced ideally for hammocks, and lots of room to spread out our three tents. All the spaces here are first come first serve, and by sundown there was only one spot left.

The next morning we geared up and started out on our ride. What we anticipated was to be a 8-ish mile, slightly uphill, paved trail away from the cars passing on the scenic byway. This ride was that and so much more in every aspect!

Our group of six consisted of casual to active bike riders on a variety of bike styles and gear. The first four miles leaving the campground and heading east are a little tougher than I expected. Those four miles gradually increase in incline difficulty and weave through a scenic forest and red rock vistas. Once we were able to finally crest the last half mile of fairly steep hill, the trail opens up to a long, straight portion of easy rolling hills with views of pastures extending to mountains far off into the distance. The beauty of the landscape makes exerting to get up that first four mile section of hill climbing completely worth the effort!

We passed a gas station/ convenience store before we asked another rider how far the trail went, as we seemed to be past the 8-ish miles we were expecting. We found out this trail had been extended in recent years to reach all the way to Inspiration Point inside Bryce Canyon National Park. Taking this full trail from the Red Canyon Campground to Inspiration Point would put the route at 16.5 miles one way. We decided that was a little further than we wanted to go on that day, but we continued on to touch the “Welcome to Bryce Canyon City” sign which made our end-to-end ride at 10.5 miles one way.

One the way back, the long rolling hills section was slightly more uphill than I had thought it was, but nothing that was too challenging. By the time we reached the last four miles, now a steep downhill section, I discovered that the cracks in the trail that I barely noticed slowly making my way up the hill, were jarring and abusive when flying down the hill. Those of us with skinny butts and even skinnier tires got spanked pretty good because of the the multiple and unavoidable cracks.

Other than some maintenance that seems long overdue to make this trail smooth and comfortable, the ride was challenging but not impossible, stunning in scenery, and made for a fun and unforgettable experience for our rag tag group of bicycle enthusiasts. We absolutely loved the spacious campground with clean bathrooms and the super friendly campground hosts!

We will absolutely be coming back next camping season to do this one again and encourage anyone who is considering a biking/camping trip to put Red Canyon Campground on your list of must do’s!!

Red Canyon Bicycle Trail

great ride/ horrible trail.

July, 2018 by lvjwmartin

What a great ride. Lots of breaks in the asphalt that are large and actually hurt. The way down was fast and the bumps were horrible. However, this is a great trail and I’ll continue riding it. It is beautiful.

Virgin River Trail

Red Canyon Bicycle Trail

more of an uphill than I was expecting

September, 2017 by parajared

I started at Thunder Mountain Trailhead and worked my way east. It was a gradual uphill the entire ride all the way to end of the canyon. I thought the section of trail not inside the canyon was pretty meh but the rest of the canyon was pretty scenic and well maintained. I would recommend doing the 1st five miles only and then just turn around unless you just really have a hankering to ride a few extra miles of boring prairie.

Red Canyon Bicycle Trail

Wonderful trail to ride!

September, 2017 by acannefax

I started this trail just outside Bryce Canyon National Park at Ruby's RV park and campground. You can catch the trail just across the street and head north to the intersection of Hwy 63 and N 100 E. You ride on the sidewalk for a bit, but then you can see the trail pick up again at this intersection, across the street. It goes north for a bit and then heads west at the Cowboy Ranch House and Bryce Canyon resort. For about a total of 8.5 miles the trail is flat or rolling hills. After that, for about 5 more miles it is downhill to Thunder Mountain trailhead. If you don't want to ride the 5 miles back uphill, stop at the Red Canyon trailhead. The 5 miles back from Thunder Mountain trailhead are certainly a challenge, but not too bad. The views are awesome, and the trail surface is really good - just a few bumps in places. As others have said, the trail continues from where I started, into Bryce Canyon National Park. I did not ride this section.
