Overview

The Whole Guacamole trail is a lot of fun to ride with some singletrack thrown in and lots of slick rock type riding and technical features. Trail finding can be challenging in a few areas so watch for small rock cairns.

Need to Know

Dalton Wash Rd off Rte 9 can be very thick with dust. If it is wet, I would not attempt trying to drive to the trailhead as the road gets extremely steep and rutted.

Description

The Whole Guacamole has a little bit of everything for riders. Start out on slickrock and move to singletrack then as you venture further out on the loops more technical pieces start popping up. The outer loop has some very nice singletrack with gravelly type trail tread. Watch for the small rock cairns to find your way. There are some white dots on the rock to help with trail finding but don't rely on those.

Folks generally ride the loops clockwise but they can be ridden in either direction.

The views are spectacular to boot. You are almost touching West Temple and Mount Kinesava in Zion National Park. Looking out the valley towards the Pine Valley Mountains on the west side of St. George is pretty stunning. You'll pass a very interesting looking cinder cone on this ride.

Lots of beautiful sagebrush and juniper are present and they smell pretty sweet after a rain. Desert wildflowers also bloom on the mesa and that adds to the beauty of the red rock.

Owls, hawks and condor can be seen on this ride.

History & Background

A lot of petrified wood on this ride which is pretty cool.
