Hurricane Cliffs Trail System
Unlike the other trail systems in St. George Field Office area, the Hurricane Cliffs Trail System wasn’t developed because of its awesome slick rock or incredible views, and it isn’t inside a protected area such as a Reserve or Area of Critical Environmental Concern. This trail system developed because it’s an area that is just plain fun to mountain bike.
While not the legendary riding of the Gooseberry Mesa National Recreation Trail
(under who’s shadow this trail system sits), the Hurricane Cliffs Trail System has its own rewards. From smooth, rolling terrain to rough, rocky slabs, there are 22.6 miles of great riding single-track in the system. Best of all, if you’re willing to ride a short section of State Route 59, and a few sections of 4 x 4 roads, you can bike a loop of 21.6 miles.
Be sure to check each trail you plan to visit as there are user group restrictions. For example, the Canal Trail is only open to hikers, and equestrians are restricted to existing roads and the Chinatown Wash Trail.
