Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail

Entry Barriers are Dangerous to Bikers

October, 2020 by nelsonk48

This is a great trail but the double barriers are dangerous and difficult maneuver around.

Thank you to Kaysville for opening up one gate at each entrance. If we could get Layton and Farmington to do the same, this would be a fantastic bike ride trail

Candy Mountain Express Bike Trail

Sweet Ride Into Canyon

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Sevier, UT
Parking: Large parking area off of Hwy 89 within a mile of I-70 exit.
Trail Condition: Excellent condition, recently resealed, wide pavement. Hard to find a trail in better condition.
Signage: Trail very well signed with mileage markers every 1/2 mile.
Comments: The trail is 16.5 miles from end to end, not the 8 miles listed on TrailLink. We did the portion from Sevier south into the canyon and was well worth the easy stop off of I-70. Was a beautiful fall afternoon. Is an old railroad bed with very slight grade up hill to the south end of trail. The trail is on the opposite side of the river, most of the time, from the highway and makes for a peaceful ride along the river. There is an old railroad tunnel with information signs, unfortunately they were not able to route the trail through the old tunnel, still was fun to see. We really enjoyed this trail. We didn’t the portion of trail from Sevier north to Elsinore, if time permitting would also be nice ride, although much more straight and through the open countryside.

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).

Halfway Wash Trail

Nice ride along wash

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St George, UT
Trail Condition: Wide pavement in very good condition. One underpass had warning about water in low areas and it really did have some water on the trail. Nothing real serious but did get feet a little wet from splash.
Signage: St George trail system has excellent signage.
Comments: This trail follows along Halfway Wash and away from busy street traffic. Passes through one of the nice St. George city parks. Has a number of bridge crossing over the wash. Trail connects to other trails for lots of ride options. 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).

Bluff Street Path

Good for connection

October, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: St George, UT
Trail Condition: Mostly wide pavement with some portions of concrete but all in excellent condition.
Signage: St George trail system has excellent signage.
Comments: This trail just parallels busy Bluff Street for a short distance on both sides of the street. Downhill on one side and uphill the other. Trail connects to other trails for lots of ride options. 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).
