Description

The Gooseberry Mesa trail network sits at 5200 feet elevation on a slickrock mesa and it's like a giant urban bike park. The trail is marked with white paint dots on the slickrock and signs at the junctions. The network is a bit of a maze, but fairly easy to follow. The trail undulates up and down house size sandstone mounds and twists through tight rock canyons. It's the perfect technical mountain bike trail. There are many ways to connect the various trails to make it longer or shorter, harder or easier, and they're all good. If this is your first time, you may want to ride the Practice Trail first to get your Gooseberry groove on. Bring lots of water. There is no drinking water available on the mesa. There is primitive camping available in the area.

This trail leaves directly from the White Trail heading south, and ends at the viewpoint on the west end of the mesa. This is the most technical trail in the Gooseberry Mesa trail network. The climbs, and descents, are larger and this trail dances on the edge in several places. Of course, this makes the vistas even better.
