    Other trails besides Gooseberry in St. George area?

    I've done Gooseberry quite a bit, and wouldn't mind doing it again, but I wonder what else folks can recommend in the area? I've heard Little Creek is hard to navigate without a guide and we have no GPS. I've done the JEM trail....nothing special imo. One caveat is that we travel in an RV. It has very good ground clearance, but a long wheelbase and dual rear wheels so some trails might be hard to access.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Check out...

    Rockville Bench/Slickrock Swap
    Bear Claw/Green Valley Loop
    Barrel Trail
    Church Rocks

    All of these are RV accessible, but do NOT attempt Gooseberry if the dirt roads are wet. When are you coming? Maybe a few of us locals can show you around Little Creek. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    Where do we get info on the Barrel trail? It's not on the utahmountainbiking web site.

    Portions of the trail are shown on the Green Valley Raceway Trail system. There are several ways to climb the uphill section, but basically you want to get to the Viewpoint (lower lefthand corner of the map) and then stay right hugging the rim. I believe that portions of the trail make up sections of the Downhill trail. I'd be happy to show you the trail next time you're in town. Link the Barrel Trail up with Bearclaw if you want more miles.

    Broken Mesa is also a riot. Just don't make the mistake of not shuttling it.
