Cryptobiotic Trail

Recommended Users: Mountain Bikers, Hikers. Singletrack trail. 3 miles in length. Difficulty: Moderate/Easiest. From the midway point on Goosebumps Trail, the Cryptobionic Trail makes a beeline downhill toward the Virgin River, winding for 3 miles through a series of flowing turns that are perfect for riders just developing their downhill skills. With a gradual drop in terrain, speeds are easily manageable and this trail is just pure fun. “Crypto” ends at the Virgin Dam Trailhead where riders can find a restroom, stone picnic tables, and the intersection with the rugged Rim Trail.Mountain Biking Loop: Numerous looping opportunities are available.
