Paradise Canyon

Just a plain ole’ good ride

Info

Utah Bike Path - specialized mountain bike in st. georgeThis ride begins about 4 miles from down town St. George. Its about a 7 miles loop that has many different options of routes you can take. With the first section consisting of double track, the rest of the ride is single track. With a gradual climb to the peak, you can take your time enjoying the surroundings. However, don’t take your eyes off the downhill section of the trail. With very steep and uneven surfaces, you can get yourself in a lot of trouble very quickly. Keep your hands lightly gripped to your handlebars and leave your front brake alone. With one quick tap of your front brake on some descents, and over you go. With a wonderful backdrop and crazy downhills, you’ll come back to this one.
