Overview

This is a loop ride beginning north of I70 at the Colorado, Utah border climbing to the mesa overlooking Rabbit Valley.

Need to Know

Open to motorized use.

Description

From the Rabbit Valley exit drive north to a small parking lot and turn left climbing through a switchback. Top out and drive to a three-way intersection. Go left and drive a mile to and park at the state line. The road beyond this point becomes less passable, and there are limited parking opportunities.

Ride west 1 1/2 miles to a drainage underpass below I70. Ride towards a sign board and climb the road to the right. Note: Zion Curtain IS NOT the singletrack that begins just across I70. The singletrack begins about 1/2 mile up the doubletrack at a marker on the left.

Zion Curtain winds in and out of multiple drainages along the course of the climb, eventually reaching a wire fence, the namesake curtain between Colorado and Utah. The trail follows the fence to the rim overlooking Rabbit Valley. 2 miles after reaching the rim, Zion Curtain forks with Zion Curtain Alternate Descent. These two trails converge after a mile.

Zion Curtain singletrack ends at a three-way road junction, with the Kokopelli Trail (the southern and western legs) and a road to the north. Go north on the dirt road. After 2 3/4 miles pass the beginning of the Zion Curtain singletrack and continue downhill and across I70. Ride the dirt frontage road back to the car.
