Description

This is a great flow trail on the south end of Cedar City. Access this downhill trail by riding the uphill trail, Lichen It, that takes you to the start of Lava Flow. The Lava Flow trail is a wide, machine-built, flow trail with many optional drops and jumps. Use the high berms to help maintain speed, and be on the lookout for all the optional lines.

Caution: The entire trail does not "flow". There are several technical rock gardens that will get your attention if you try to continue the "flow" through them at the same speed as the bermed sections.

Trail quality was great. Some technical features but all of them have alternate lines.

this trail is not quite intermediate. It has more advanced features that are technical. Not a good one to take an intermediate rider on just so you…

Lava Flow is an awesome, technical trail. There are several rock gardens ranging in length and difficulty, hills and drops, and an amazing overlook. 1.8mi — 31h 30m

I am still in the beginning stages of riding (2 years) and this was by far one of the funnest downhill rides I have done.
