Update

A short singletrack and slickrock ride near St. George.

Edward-Bam Lopez

Overview

This year-round trail is also called Bluff Street Cliffs Trail. It's a short singletrack and slickrock ride on north edge of St. George, climbing along the cliffs. Expect intermediately technical trail with mild climbs.

Description

The Bluff Street Cliffs trail has been renamed Owen's Trail. This is a quick out-and-back ride of 3 miles (1.5 miles each way) that features some very nice rock, requiring good technical skills. Because it's within a couple of bicycle-minutes from most of St. George's motels, you can hit this trail during the morning chill and be back before your roommates have shaken off the morning groggies.

The trail begins as a dirt singletrack. At the wash, you can climb straight up the wash, or wind left around the mountain. We recommend left. Continue up onto the slickrock. You'll need to pack your bike up a rocky shute about 1/3 mile along the trail. Once on the rock, the trail isn't too hard to follow if you keep your eyes open for the cairns (rock piles) that mark the way.

Follow a twisting course through the rocks, and watch for a narrow 20-foot chute descending on the left. As you hit the bottom, veer right again and climb toward the next hill. When you reach it, celebrate by circling around the cliffs over the golf course. Retrace your steps to the trailhead.

Conditions



Not really suitable for mountain biking. All rocks and unless technically very proficient you will end up carrying your bike a lot. Even the parts I could ride over were very bumpy and miserable Apr 7, 2016
