Have you ever had the exhilarating feeling of being on top of the world?!
Imagine the wind on your face as your toes reach the edge of an expansive mesa looking out over panoramic views of colorful desert vista, water carved canyons and to the North the massive sandstone sentinels standing tall forming the natural walls at the edge of Zion National Park. The colors of the desert shift and move as the hues change with the setting sun with only the sound of your pounding heartbeat drawing you back.
Standing at the edge of this 1,000 foot drop-off after mastering the short burst climbs and navigating your way through the technical trails of singletrack genius and slickrock innovation- it’s hard not to feel like you’ve conquered the world and are now looking down on it all.
We all head to the trails to find something different for ourselves. Sometimes it’s a clarity of mind, the feeling of “getting away from it all”, the excitement of challenging ourselves with something physical, the sites and views you only get from the seat of your bike, or giving in to the endorphins that riding produces that we know will just make us feel happier in life. On the other hand there are the times that we want a challenge a time where we want to push our limits, where we want to not only go through the motions as our bikes dance below us but we also want to think through how to make it over an obstacle or down a technical grade a way for us to push the envelope just a bit farther than the last time. No matter what your motivation is for your ride when you are headed to Gooseberry/Hurricane you get it to have it all and that’s including the breathtaking views.
Expertly designed by the Harris brothers over 20 years ago this collection of intertwined trails will lead you through miles and miles of anything from singletrack, slickrock, tight twisting Juniper runs, stair-like sections, hairpin turns, technical hard rock trails and stunning views. The singletrack trail is marked by white dots that the Harris brothers re-paint every year along with a few trail markers placed by the Bureau of Land Management. Deemed as BLM’s “Backyard to Backcountry” Treasures it’s no wonder why Gooseberry Mesa and Hurricane cliffs are rated among the world’s greatest mountain biking destinations.
