Stucki Springs Trail
The Stucki Springs Trail starts southwest of St. George in Green Valley, with an alternate trailhead in Santa Clara. From Green Valley, it climbs up the "Downhill Race Course" singletrack for three miles, drops (and we do mean DROPS) off the mesa to rolling desert, turns south at Stucki Springs, then joins the Green Valley Trail again at Clavicle Hill. The loop described here is 12 miles, strenuous aerobic, intermediate technical with a rare smattering of advanced technical.

Stucki Springs Trail Map Getting there: Take the Bluff Street I-15 exit in St. George and turn west. Immediately turn south (left) on Hilton Drive. Go past the golf course and turn right when you reach Dixie Drive. Turn left at the sign for Green Valley Spa. Drive past the spa and park at the end of the road. From the top of the mesa, ride down across the wash. Keep left until you're through the fence, then turn right as the Green Valley trail turns left up the hill. Find the singletrack on the left about 100 yards up, just before the doubletrack drops into a rock wash.
