T-Bone Trail

Recommended Users: Equestrians, Hikers, Mountain Bikers
 
Type:  Two-track
 
Length: 1.9 miles
 
 
 
Sub-Area: City Creek
 
Zone: Lowland
 
Managing Agency:  BLM and City of St. George
 
Access:  T-Bone Trailhead—From I-15 Exit 8 turn west onto St. George Blvd. Turn right on 1000 East. Turn right at the traffic light onto Red Hills Parkway. Continue until reaching Cottonwood Springs Road and turn left. This road turns into Cottonwood Road at the intersection with Red Rock Road. From this intersection, travel approximately 1.2 miles on the paved Cottonwood Road to the T-Bone Trailhead.
 
 
Description: The T-Bone trail, an old road, is an easy two track trail that follows a major powerline for most of its length, starting from the large municipal sub-station across the road from the trailhead.  Despite the intrusive visual of the powerline, the trail offers easy access to the NCA and the potential to view an assortment of small wildlife. The area is also striking for its surrounding landscape of black volcanic rock and red sandstone.  This trail passes under its namesake T-Bone Hill, which looks something like a T-bone steak in aerial view.  Bikers beware: there are some deep sandy sections.
 
Loop: For a 4.6 mile loop, follow T-bone trail to Pioneer Hills Trail. Turn right and continue to Pioneer Rim Trail. Follow Pioneer Rim Trail until it intersects T-Bone Trail. Turn left and continue back to the trailhead.
