Access: White Trailhead – From City of St. George travel north on Interstate 15. Take exit 16 to Hurricane City. Turn right on Main Street. Take the first left onto State Route 59. Turn left on Smithsonian Butte National Backcountry Byway. At 2.8 miles from the SR 59, turn left and travel northwest 3.3 miles until reaching the Gooseberry Trailhead. Turn left at the Gooseberry Trailhead and travel west for 1.3 miles to reach the White Trailhead.
Description: This trail is an old 4 x 4 road that bisects the Gooseberry Mesa. Like the entire mesa, the White Trail gradually slopes up 2% to the west, making it easier and faster to ride back to the trailhead. Many mountain bikers ride out to the west rim on the single track and loop back to the trailhead using the White Trail. Since this is a mixed user trail, all users should exercise caution and keep a sharp eye out for others.
NOTE: This trail is open to motorized users for only a portion of its length. Motorized users cannot reach the west rim and should not attempt to do so. Motorized users cannot use any other trails unless the trails are specifically designated “open” for motorized use.
