Mountain Biking Church Rocks

You made it to the drainage pipe now muster up some courage and ride through it. You may have to walk a few feet once you leave the pipe. The trail climbs out of the wash on the left and when it crosses the wash again take the trail on the left up onto slickrock. Now follow the cairns and old painted dashes on the rock. Follow the trail towards Church Rocks along the rim then drop into the valley and head back to the trail you can make another loop or head back down to the wash and to the pipe that brought you there.

    Being local I ride this trail the most. I enjoy the type of riding this trail has to offer which is mainly smooth dirt. There is some slick rock but nothing really challenging. It's very convenient to get to and isn't overcrowded. The best time to ride is after it rains because of some sandy areas. If you are going to ride here in the summer go early in the morning. I've also ridden this in the dark many times and would only suggest it to somebody familiar with the trail.

    A great ride that might even be 5 stars in some areas (like mine) but out here, it's where the locals get broken in and it's THE PLACE to go ride if there's been any recent moisture. Mostly singletrack with alot of features to practice on as well. While most of it could be ridden by a beginner, there are a few areas where you can find yourself in serious trouble if you venture off the main trails so pay attention. Definitely worth your time to seek out even if you think you're a pro just to break up the week :)

    Fun trail with options to link up to other trails. Good access and good trail to ride if you want to break up some hours on a road trip through the region. Great local ride.

    Fast, dusty singletrack leads to gnarly slickrock riding. Link up the Church Rocks loop with other trails paralleling I-15 for an epic day in the saddle. A few steep rocky sections plus a couple "sand pits" to keep you on your toes.

    The trail is like a sorta like a mini Gooseberry but not as technical or difficult. An intermediate rider would have a load of fun on this trail. The problem with it is that it is short.
