Huge variety of trail terrain. Great for all types of runner. Awesome views of Zion National Park. Free camping and parking.

Windmill trail and trailhead sits just down the road from Gooseberry Mesa Trailhead in Apple Valley, Utah. Head out on this figure-8 loop for as long as you want. If you're smart, you'll bring your MTB, and you can ride the singletrack once you're done getting your run in.

This is also a great spot to set up camp and get great starlit skies.

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.
