New Peak View and Three Falls trails in Draper
Three Falls is open for riding, but is only complete to just above the Three Falls subdivision of Alpine (no connection!). The eastern two-mile section to Alpine Cove (near Lambert Park) is closed for subdivision construction.   Trail page...   July 2017.

Virgin River Rim Trail update
New tracks, new photos, and a video of the eastern (Pink Cliffs) loop ride using the Virgin Rim trail.   Trail page...   July 2017.

Highlands Trail at Cedar City
The last piece is in place for a continuous route from Southview to the C Overlook. Uphill out-and-back, shuttled downhill, loop ride.   Trail page...   July 2017.

New pics and video for Big Springs.
Surprised to learn it had been 10 years since my last ride in Provo Canyon's South Fork. So it was time to spiffy up the page with new photos and a trail video.   Trail page...   June 2017.

Payson Canyon!
I've updated the Blackhawk, Jones Ranch, Rock Spring, and Shram trail pages with new photos, higher-resolution GPS tracks, and a new area topo map. Plus three Payson Canyon videos.   Blackhawk...   Jones Ranch...   Rock Spring...   Shram Creek...     June 2017.

Updated GPX area file and map for Dutch Hollow.
There have been several trail re-routes in Dutch Hollow recently, including Dutchman Way, north Sage (now Top Notch), and Boneyard. The new Flatline extends two miles north on the east side. So I have a new topo map for you to print and take along. Plus a trail video to show what the area is like!    Trail page...   June 2017.

Ross Creek at Jordanelle. Easy, fun, and scenic.
Here's a nice 3.5 mile figure-eight ride on non-treatening trail. This ride combines the new Wada Way and Keetley singletracks. Great for beginners but experienced riders will enjoy it too.    Trail page...   June, 2017.

Levitate.
Boy, is the gravity crowd happy! But you may be wondering if this new expert-level jumping trail is too dangerous for your own skill-set. Well, if you're a good experienced rider and want to learn to take air, this is your trail. I've added this trail to the Vertigo page. Oh, and there's a video of an old man managing to get down this trail alive.    Trail page... June, 2017.

Cliffs, rocks and great views. Not your usual Country Club.
South of Helper on Bull Mesa, a network of trails has been developed. The trailhead overlooks the Country Club, but you won't ride there nor will you drive in with your car.   Trail page...
June, 2017.

Superb!  The High Star trail system in Kamas is boss.
10 miles of well-constructed fun trail, most of it one-way flow.  This is a trail system that you absolutely must do.    Trail page...
May, 2017.

New trail in Moab!
Here's a 9.2-mile loop ride in the Horsethief area. Easy-intermediate in tech requirement; not a lot of climbing. But it's brand new, so there's a lot of loose dirt in the middle of the loop. For now, I think you'll be happier riding this on a fatty!   Trail page...
May, 2017.

Updated Wood Hill riding area...
There's a new trailhead -- with a toilet, even -- with new Solis Way trail and Bill's Sandy. Take another look at the Price riding area! Now I just need to hit those Country Club trails...    Wood Hills area trail index page...
May, 2017.

Updated Corner Canyon - Creekview page
There have been some changes in lower Corner Canyon due to pipeline construction, but it's all healed now and ready to ride. The very very old trail page for the little loop has been updated with new photos, riding instructions, and a video. PS use the underpass from the parking lot, NOT the crosswalk.  Trail page...
May, 2017.

Broken Mesa! When you really really want to break something!
I've re-worked the Broken Mesa page with new photos and updated ride description. And my awesome four-minute video will tempt you to ride a trail you're going to absolutely hate. Or not.   YouTube video...    Trail page...
May, 2017.

Windmill plus Bowls and Ledges update!
I've fleshed out the Gooseberry Mesa Windmill Trail page with fresh information and new photos. Also, a couple of trail videos.  YouTube video...    Trail page...
May, 2017.

Owen's. Another lesser-known St. George trail
Owen's Loop Trail, also known as the Bluff Street Cliffs, is a rather techy little route on the cliffs above -- guess where -- Bluff Street. The trail page has been updated, with a video for those who want to see what the trail is like.   Trail page...
May, 2017.

Paradise Rim. The best little trail you've never heard of.
I've done an update to the St. George Paradise Rim trail page. All new photos and a trail video. This really is a fun little trail, but it doesn't get much press.   Trail page...
May, 2017.

Update to the C Trail!
After 15 years, it was time to hit Cedar City's C Trail. This gem runs from the Kolob Reservoir road at 8250 feet down to the paved East Bench trail at 6000 feet. Also, a trail video on the page shows you what it's like.   Trail page...
May, 2017.

Are you Lichen It?
The Lichen It and Lava Flow trails create a loop that's great fun for riders of all abilities. Quick (just over 4 miles) and only a minute off the south Cedar City I-15 exit. See our new trail video on the updated information page.   Trail page...
April, 2017.

Lightning Switch at Cedar City
Here's the story on the latest installment of the 50-mile trail system in the Thunderbird Gardens area near Cedar City. Kind of a tough climb, and a bit of gnar on the downhill. Not a ride for the delicate. Add Thor's Hideout to this loop, and it's a satisfying bike outing.   Trail page...

Battered but unbeaten. Juniper Crest trail update
    A new subdivision is being built within the middle of the Juniper Crest loop in Herriman. The trail is being "nicked" here and there by the construction, but is still very rideable and will endure as a permanent city trail.

Video for Eagle Mountain Race Loop
Wondered how this trail rides? If it's worth your time? Is it just butt-ugly high-desert desolation? So here's your answer in a three-minute video. Usually good to ride when foothill trails are muddy!

Webb Hill (Kentucky Lucky Chicken Trail) video...
The 3.8-mile singletrack loop around upper Webb Hill is always harder -- more techy -- than I remember it. And now there's a video that shows what it's like to ride.   Trail report...    Go directly to YouTube video.  March 2017.

Videos added to some St. George pages! Check 'em out.

Update to the Barrel Roll trail
Very popular trail, but most early-intermediate riders hit this trail with no idea how technical the riding can be. Lots of "hikers" during my last visit. So my new trail video shows Barrel Roll's bumpy side as well as the cruising.  Trail report...   March 2017.

New videos in the Green Valley area.
Doing some trail updating down south. Added videos for a few trails.

The Quail Creek trail. New video!
Last fall, the Quail Creek (West Lakeside) trail was extended. I updated the page in December. But I had to go ride it again and make a trail video. It's on the trail page.  Trail report...   March 2017.

Sand Mountain (Hurricane Dunes!)
For the adventurous fat-bike rider who's looking for exciting stuff in the St. George area, here it is. Miles of slickrock riding among hoodoos and fabulous views. Oh yeah. And sand.   Trail report...   March 2017.

Updated Rim Rock page...
The Rim Rock page now includes a 4 minute video of the trail system to show you what it's like to ride. And there's a new Barrel Roll Area topo map to print and a GPX multi-track area file to download.   Trail report...   March 2017.
