Mountain Biking

Simply put Southern Utah’s mountain biking is world class.  Moab, in the Eastern part of the state, holds nothing over the trails of Dixie yet it’s still off the crowd-radar.  Majestic views, technical slick-rock and untold miles of winding single-track trails await the adventurous.  With over 300 sunny days per year and access to rides that range from elevations of 3,000-10,000 feet all within an hour of the greater St. George area it’s perfect for year-round riding.  But keep it quiet… we want to keep it this way!
