Coming out to the St. George area May 2nd to the 10th and would love to hear some local recommendations for riding since we've never ridden the area. Fit cross country riders who aren't afraid of aggressive terrain. No shuttles since we only have one car and we prefer to ride up to enjoy the ride down.
Flying in/out of Vegas so we figure we will hit Bootleg Canyon and Cottonwood for a day each at the beginning/end of the trip. Trail recommendations welcome for those as well. Gooseberry was the reason we chose to head to your corner of the MTB world, so we'd obviously like to get some good riding in there. We'll be camping at Snow Canyon at least part of the time, so rides near St. George would be good too.
Any chance Brian Head will have rideable trails in early May? The Dark Hollow and Left Fork of Bunker Creek rides sound really good but we respect the trails so we are looking for some local opinions if they will be rideable and if not, we are looking for recommendations of other stuff in the area that will be.
Things I've heard about:
JEM > Hurricane Rim > Gould's Rim
Bear Claw Poppy
Green Valley Raceway
We plan on riding every day and want to hit the best of the best. Digging around on the Net it seems like some of the trails are short, so longer ride suggestions or best ways to link multiple trails would be helpful too.
In general, how well are the trails in the area marked?
Thanks in advance for any info.
