Bike "Holy Guacamole" Outside of Zion NP

Utah Dalton Wash Rd

Added by

Holy Guacamole offers a great Combination of Slickrock and Single Track Riding with incredible views into Zion National Park.

This incredibly scenic ride is just out of Zion National Park and is a great place to escape the tourists. The ride starts at the end of Dalton Wash Rd just off of Route 9. High clearance vehicles are recommended and one should not attempt to drive this road in wet conditions. If you are having trouble finding a campsite in the park itself, camping is allowed at the top of the Guacamole Mesa.

From fast flow single track to slick rock riding, this trail has a plethora of cross country mountain biking features. There are many different trail options in this area, but the most common route is to do the outer loop. The trail gets progressively more technical the further you ride. Watch out for wire wrapped cairns to find your way through the route. It is recommend to go to the local bike shop in Springdale or Hurricane for a trail map. Perhaps the most scenic part of the ride is at the far end of the loop. This ride takes you right on the edge of the mesa for spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Mountain Bike the Shafer Trail in Moab

Utah / Shafer Trailhead

The best way to ride the Shafer Trail is to bring a support vehicle (one with 4WD and decently high clearance). If you're into a sufferfest, by all means climb your way out of there.

Hike Mount Ellen in Utah's Henry Mountains

Utah / Mount Ellen Peak Trail

Mount Ellen is considered an Ultra Prominent Peak. What's that you may ask? Well, Ultra Prominent Peaks are determined by how high the summit rises above its surroundings.

Mountain Bike the Intrepid Trail System in Dead Horse Point SP

Utah / Intrepid Trails

If you're visiting Moab for some mountain biking, this is a great place to start. There's nothing too technical and plenty of route options and points to bail out if you're getting tired.
