Slickrock and Singletrack, Utah MTB

Samenvatting

Utah-MB-2

Southern Utah’s canyon country is renowned for its incredible multi colored cliffs, valleys, red rock monoliths, and singletrack trails. Shaped by billions of years of erosion, this alien landscape emerged as a true adventurer’s playground. Hundreds of miles of singletrack trails wind over smooth outcroppings of weathered sandstone, known as slickrock. The ideal riding surface for mountain biking, slickrock provides a high level of grip, and stability, allowing riders to conquer even the gnarliest of obstacles. Expect a smorgasbord of turns, quick drops, short climbs, and no shortage of technical features that will push your balance, and ability as a rider. Spectacular vistas lie around every corner, and the unique beauty and colors of Utah will leave you in awe.

Routebeschrijving

Day 1 - Gooseberry Mesa

Gooseberry Mesa is regarded to be one of the best technical trails in the world, and is the perfect starting point for your adventure. On this singletrack trail you will find yourself surrounded by incredible views of red rock mesas, water carved canyons, and the massive sentinel spires of Zion National Park. The mesa offers a number of marked trail options with ample bailouts, allowing for some serious flexibility when determining the length and difficulty of today’s ride. While you won’t face any major elevation gains, your balance, burst, and reactions will be put to the test. After a full day of glory, we’ll head back to our hotel in Springdale, to celebrate a successful first day with an included dinner at the Zion Canyon Brewing Company.

Day 2 - Hurricane Rim

Our main route today combines the Hurricane Rim Trail, Goulds Rim, and JEM Trails to form an epic 20 mile singletrack circuit. This ride features more of the spectacular desert and canyon vistas typical of the region, including views of Zion. Although there are a couple of easy climbs, this trail maintains a heavy downhill flow, culminating in the incredibly fast, and fun JEM descent. Following the ride, rejoin your group to recharge with an included lunch in Hurricane.
If you’re still feeling hungry after lunch, take a bite out of the Whole Guacamole. This route features 11 miles of fantastic singletrack, slickrock, and technical features, with spectacular views of West Temple, Mount Kinesava, Pine Valley Mountains, and St George.

Day 3 - Thunder Mountain

There are two approaches to the main feature of today’s ride, the Thunder Mountain Trail. Route 1 represents a longer, full loop of the area before finishing with the Thunder Mountain Trail. This route begins with a mellow 5.5 mile climb on a paved bike path before opening up into a mountain prairie, and a 2 mile ride along a dirt road to the Thunder Mountain Trailhead. Route 2 gets straight to the point, beginning directly at the trailhead.
Located just outside Bryce National Park, you’ll be treated to amazing views of the striking white and orange cliffs, and hoodoos. At 8000ft the ups and downs at the beginning will have you breathing heavy before finding the downhill flow later in the ride. The trail is mostly smooth hard pack, and while there aren’t too many technical sections or drops, there are a few loose, steep switchbacks which will be sure to have you white knuckling. Its all worth it, as the last couple miles are a balls to the wall downhill, on smooth single track.
If that downhill had you feeling squirrelly, the afternoon extension is another singletrack downhill from Brian Head Peak to Panguitch. To no one’s surprise, this ride features incredible views in every direction as you climb above the timberline, highlighted by the appearance of Cedar Breaks National Monument to the South. As you drop into the drainage, you’ll have the opportunity to bomb it to the bottom in another fast and fun downhill

Day 4 - Virgin River Rim Trail pt 1

On today’s ride, we tackle the first section of the 32 mile long Virgin River Rim Trail. A tributary of the Colorado River, the Virgin River has carved through the red sandstone of Zion National Park for over 13 million years, creating some of the most unforgettable scenery in the world.
The trail base is mostly hard pack dirt, but also features a number of more rocky, technical sections. As you climb the ridgeline, the ride begins with a high altitude alpine single track trail winding through forests of pine, fir, and aspen. From 6000 ft above the valley floor, you’ll encounter incredible views of the Pink Cliffs, the surrounding valley, and the Virgin River as it breaks towards Zion.
Nearing Cascade Falls, you’l be faced with a decent uphill, and rewarded with more amazing viewpoints overlooking Navajo Lake. From here you can take a break from the saddle with a quick half mile hike to Cascade Falls before beginning the second segment en route to Te Ah Campground. The second segment will see two moderate climbs, and a number of even more stunning sights before a long descent to our finish point.
Following this long day on the trail, we’ll return to Brianhead to relax, and recover with an included dinner and massage.

Day 5 - Virgin River Rim Trail pt 2

We pick up where we left off yesterday, as we return to conquer the second half of the Virgin River Rim Trail. While yesterday’s ride was largely spent above the ridgeline on high altitude mesas, today’s section dives into a dense forest of fir and aspen. Gradual elevation changes in this section give way to a fast and thickly forested three mile downhill.
Our afternoon extension is an absolute classic downhill trail intended for experts. Serving as one of the courses in the Utah Gravity Mountain Bike Race Series, the Dark Hollow sees steep descents, rocky switchbacks, and some challenging technical sections. With a total descent of 4600ft over 12 miles, this trail provides another opportunity to hit some hard and fast downhills.
Main Route: Te-Ah CG to Woods Ranch. Distance: 10.6 miles, Elevation Gain: 650′ a / 1609′ d

Day 6 - Brianhead Mountain Bike Park

The Mountain Bike Park in Brianhead is truly one of the most unique mountain biking experiences available in the country. Referred to as “Downhill of the Gods,” by Outdoor Action Magazine, the park utilizes a combined chairlift, and shuttle service allowing access to 5000ft descents, and over 100 miles of trails designed by the legendary Momentum Trail Concepts build crew. With trails ranging from easy to advanced, and a plethora of freestyle, downhill, and technical features, you’ll be able to create the adventure of a lifetime. Rejoin your group in the afternoon to celebrate the memories, sore saddles, and friendships formed over a tasty meal and a cold beer.
