Virgin River Rim Trail/Navajo Lake - Ridable???
Nayone have any trail beta on VRRT and Navajo Lake?
Who is Nayone? Does he live up there?
If you are into lots and lots of log bunny hopping, the trail is great. Otherwise, wait for the trail crew to get to it. Rumor is that it's going to be renamed Navajo Puddle this summer.
I ran into a couple a week and a half ago there, but neither one was Nayone.
So in your opinion if I start at Cascade Falls ride the trail to the road crossing at the west end of the lake and then do a lake loop and then the road back to cascade falls parking lot will I have to cross lots of fallen trees.

Hit up the VRRT Trail today from Cascade Falls.... Trails is sweet all teh way to the dirt road. After that there is still a lot of dead fall (about 25-30 trees).
Navajo Lake Loop was fast n fun. Lake level is WAAAAAAY down, that things might be gone by Setember!!
I am hoping to do an out and back on the VRRT from Te-ah to Strawberry Point as well as some rides(Lowder Ponds/Sidney Peaks etc) at Brian Head within the next couple of weeks. Does anyone know if the dead fall has been cleared? Thanks
Just finished the Dixie 200 race which travel the VRRT, Marathon, Lowder, Sidney Peaks, Dark Hollow plus Thunder Mtn, Spruce, and most of the epic Paunsagunt.
Downed trees are a non issue, especially on the VRRT. Deep sand and extreme fire danger is what to watch for.
Were you able to find the single track portions of the Marathon? The part that I see from the road looks over grown and un-used.
