    Southern Utah - where to go when it rains

    I have the day off today and was looking forward to an early morning ride at Gooseberry, but it was dark clouds, rain and lightning when I woke up. The trails would probably be fine, just not sure about the road getting up there.

    Where do you guys go when the weather is like this? It seems like a perfectly good waste of a day off for me. I imagine everything down by bear claw / zen is going to be a giant muddy mess and riding it would do a lot of damage. Jem is out.

    Maybe Church rocks? Any other rides that are OK to hit after a rain? Three peaks up in Cedar?

    I rode Guacamole this morning and it was great, the road getting there was fine. Church rocks would also be a good trail.

    Thanks rock dude, I didn't even think of guacamole. Should have done that instead of moping around the house bothering my wife. I did go ride Church this afternoon and it was good too. All the soft sandy spots were crusted just enough to ride over instead of trying to "swim" through.

    Anything in the Santa Clara River Preseve holds up well to rain.
    There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

    The Rim system is not nearly as wet weather resistant as BR and Sidewinder...a couple spots of clay over there, don't ask me how I know
