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 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.

Pa'rus Trail

Busy Trail

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Zion NP, UT
Parking: Arrived at park by 10a on Monday morning and all parking at visitor center was taken. Parked on street in Springdale ($20 for all day). Accessed the park at the river bridge entrance near the Zion Canyon Village mall, just before the vehicle toll booth entrance to the park.
Trail Condition: Wide pavement in good condition.
Signage: Trail is well signed.
Comments: This national park is very popular and has a high visitation rate, thus the trail was busy with lots of bikers and hikers. However, wasn’t impossible to ride and enjoy the scenery. The visitor center area was very crowded and needed to walk bike through the area to get to the trail. Makes for a decent connector to the scenic canyon drive (Floor of the Valley Drive). The scenic canyon drive is limited vehicle access and makes for a nice bike ride to the end of the canyon. Overall this was a nice ride. We did ride the road back to the visitor center and skipped Pa’rus trail on the return trip.

Highway 18 Path

Plenty of Uphill

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St George, UT
Trail Condition: Wide pavement in good condition.
Signage: This trail is signed as SR18 vice the TrailLink identification as Highway 18 trail. St George trail system has excellent signage.
Comments: This is an uphill trail if starting in St. George and going north. Change in elevation of 1,100 ft. Several of the hills on the trail are steep. We made a loop by taking the Snow Canyon Trail (State Park) route back. Was nice downhill for that portion. The trail parallels the highway but far enough away from the highway to not be bothersome. This trail gets out of town into the desert and surrounding red rocks, beautiful scenery. Combined with the Snow Canyon Trail this makes a great ride. Recommend this loop ride. We liked the counterclockwise direction. Can’t say enough good things about the St George trail system and parks, can only get better with time and more inter-connectabilty (if such a word).

Red Canyon Bicycle Trail

red canyon

October, 2020 by kevincall

I rode down the canyon. Only saw one other bike the whole way. Agree with other reviewers, while the bath has been resurfaced, some of the many cracks were very jarring on narrow tires. Beautiful fall ride. A very abrupt end at the end of trail.

Snow Canyon Trail

Do This

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Trail Condition: Wide pavement in good condition.
Signage: Could be better. Had one confusing intersection and had to ask for directions. From Ivins just parallel the road.
Comments: We combined this trail with SR18 (Highway 18) trail starting in St. George, following SR18 trail to end and then entering Snow Canyon State Park on the north end ($5 fee for the two of us). Had to ride the park road for 1.5 mile to start of Snow Canyon trail. Since SR18 trail is all uphill this trail is then a downhill ride and real sweet. Scenery is beautiful and worthy of the effort. Once out of the state park the ride is fine and parallels the road. Recommend this loop ride. We liked the counterclockwise direction. Can’t say enough good things about the St George trail system and parks, can only get better with time and more inter-connectabilty (if such a word).

Lava Flow Trail

Must do

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Santa Clara, UT
Trail Condition: Wide pavement in good condition with a brand new section of trail at the north end of trail. A very short section of trail is gravel and still under construction but passable.
Signage: While not listed as a St George trail, trail signage is the same as the others in the area.
Comments: As the name implies the trail follows alongside an ancient lava flow. It is an up and down affair, not flat at all. Still a very nice trail. The north end of trail is new and extended along a wash to end at the Archie H. Gubler Park. A nice addition to the trail. Can’t say enough good things about the St George trail system and parks, can only get better with time and more inter-connectabilty (if such a word).

Sand Hollow Wash Trail

Nice ride along wash

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St George, UT
Trail Condition: Wide pavement in good condition.
Signage: St George trail system has excellent signage.
Comments: Trail follows along Sand Hollow wash and away from traffic. Passes by a large bike park. Not a long trail but a nice quiet ride. Can connect with the longer Lava Flow trail to the west. Can’t say enough good things about the St George trail system and parks, can only get better with time and more inter-connectabilty (if such a word).

Virgin River South Trail

Great Trail

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St George, UT
Trail Condition: Wide new pavement in very good condition from Bloomington Park south.
Signage: St George trail system has excellent signage.
Comments: When we rode this trail last March this section of the trail was closed for repaving. They did a very nice job on this section of trail. Now need to repave the northern section of trail. The trail nicely parallels the river and away from traffic. Very nice trail. TrailLink implies that the south end of trail has a split and both spurs are part of Virgin River South Trail. However, the spur to the left (going south) is signed as Atkinville Trail. The trail goes a short distance then a break in the trail and picks up again for a short distance further on. Can’t say enough good things about the St George trail system and parks, can only get better with time and more inter-connectabilty (if such a word).
