I went to ride this trail on 9/23/17 and it was closed. :(
Ran this trail recently.Absolutely beautiful!Found myself just gazing at the incredible beauty of Zion during the run.There is a steady uphill grade from the Visitor Center to Canyon Junction.The first quarter mile of trail from Visitor Center is a little bumpy.So be careful.After that the Trail is quite smooth all the way to Canyon Junction.
We rode the trail from our hotel. It was a nice ride with really nice road conditions. Bike friendly town
Rode the Virgin River multi use trail from southern terminus off Man of War Lane north to causeway north of East Washington Street sports complex and back (19.4 miles). Trail is well maintained 10 to 14 foot wide black top that has a slight grade with two park facilities with bathrooms and water along the way with a number of additional parking areas to access the trail. The city is planting trees and watering them along the southern end of the trail which one day will enhance the shade and beauty of the experience.
Except for one 1/2 mile section that utilizes city streets all road crossing are underpasses that are well designed and not overly steep. There are two steep (8 to 10%), very short grades but most riders seemed to handle them with ease.
The 1/2 mile section has both sidewalks and addiquate shoulder width for all but the youngest of riders. The sidewalks can accommodate the children in a pinch.
The trail runs along the west side of the Virgin River for most of its length; nearly always in sight of the River. Views are very good with lots of vistas of red rock cliffs and the distant mountains.
The city seems to be working hard to maintain the trail by filling frost cracking with tar to keep the cracks as smooth as possible. There are one or two areas that have had a significant cracking but the repair work had been done and the ride quality did not suffer.
In my two days on the trail I saw walkers, bike riders of all kinds, roller bladders, skate boarders, runners pushing strollers, dog walkers, and a number of teenagers on scooters. Of all the rail to trail facilities I've ridden in five different states the users on this trail were the most attentive and courteous I have encountered. Especially for a holiday weekend in nice weather.
As with most rail to trail facilities too many parents and older riders forgo helmets. It is always disheartening to pass a family with the young children correctly in helmets with one or both parents without helmets. I can't help but wonder how the kids of these parents will survive if one or both parents suffer serious head injuries in a crash.
One the plus side I did not encounter anyone riding with their dog on a leash, something that endangers all trail users.
My final thought is if you are going to ride this trail in the summer take lots of extra water because there is little shade and ride early to avoid the heat.
The City of St. George has done a great job constructing this facility and is doing a great job with its upkeep. If you have a chance you should take the time to ride it.
Some really tough uphill grades going north from pioneer park through the Ledges. Return trip is mostly fast downhill until the red hills trail intersection. Nice 15-17 mile round trip depending on where you park on red hills parkway.
This is a great little trail. I am lucky enough to live close so I walk almost daily. Beautiful no matter what season. Great views of sunrises and sunsets. Not usually too crowded. Don't expect to go fishing or boating at the East Canyon Park but you can soak your feet in the creek that runs through it year round.
I have been riding the Virgin River Trail, and it is a great bike/walking trail. They have repaired sections of the trail that were washed out during the floods, and they have built a new park near the confluence of the Virgin and Santa Clara Rivers. It is a great place to get out and exercise.
Combination Sidewalk & Bike Path on east side of Bluff Street, good for locals. Parking at south end. on side street N700W. Connects at North end to Snow Canyon Bike Trail & Hwy-18 Path via Street level crossing with traffic lights. Noel Keller 30 Mar 2011
The 2006 St George Bike Trail Map showed this as a “proposed trail“. I expected to just do the loop around the park, but noticed new asphalt leading out to the east along E Riverside Dr. After 0.2 mile it turned 90 degrees to the left and resulted in a surprising smooth trail to the loop around East Park. Including both loops the trail is 1.2 miles. Excellent new surface. Noel Keller 28 Mar 2011
Also services as a sidewalk. High point in the middle of the trail. Little shade, street and driveway crossings, has distant scenic views. Surface good. Noel Keller 27 Mar 2011
Very Quiet Trail !. Merging with the Fort Pearce Wash & Webb Hill Trail to connect with the Virgin River Trail by I-15. It is a smooth scenic ride, part of the Mayors Loop Trail, Noel Keller 27 Mar 2011
A shady trail through parks ,underpasses and over bridges, with a significant grade, south down & north up. Joins the Snow Canyon Trail at north end. Surface in fine condition. Noel Keller 29 Mar 2011
