Rim Ramble Trail
Recommended Users: Mountain Bikers, Hikers
Length: 0.78 miles
Sub-Area: South Hills
Managing Agency: BLM
Access: Cove Wash Trailhead – From St. George, travel north on Bluff Street. Turn left on Sunset Blvd. Continue on Sunset Blvd as it turns into Santa Clara Drive. Turn left on Gates Lane (just before reaching the Jacob Hamblin Home on the right). Cross the river and at 0.4 miles turn left (leaving the pavement). Note that the road from this point is steep and rocky, and can be eroded. At 0.7 miles turn right (at sign for Reserve). Pass the water tank, and at 1.3 miles turn right (at sign for reserve). Follow the road around to the left and park in the trailhead at 1.5 miles.
From the trailhead, follow the Cove Wash West Trail
(an existing two-track) until it drops into Cove Wash. Turn left into the wash to follow the Cove Wash East Trail
for approximately 0.3 miles. Turn right onto an ATV track (which is the start of the Rim Rock Trail
) that climbs up and out of the wash. Turn right at the first two-track intersection and continue traveling west up to the OHV exclusion fence and stepover. Continue up the two-track for approximately 1/8 mile. To avoid some large rocks in the two-track, the Rim Ramble Trail starts on the left and skirts this obstacle. It wanders the edge of the mesa rim through typical black brush desert and eventually connects back to the Rim Rock Trail.
