Q: how do you get there -Guest

A: UT 59 at Apple Valley take Main St or the Smithsonian Butte Scenic Byway 3 miles north to Gooseberry Mesa sign. Head west 5 miles to trail head on a dirt road that can be impassable in bad weather. There is also access from near Springdale but that road is impassable when wet.

Review: This is a great trail with spectacular views. Take a lunch and eat it out on the farthest point of the Mesa you can ride. Lots of ups and downs, drop offs, and short difficult climbs etc. This is a very technical trail with fun, fun, fun slick rock options. A bucket list trail for sure.

Review: Technical riding at its best. This trail is a puzzle that gets put together one move at a time. There are at least 20 miles of singletrack that can be linked together on the Mesa. Lots of fun and great views everywhere you turn. Primitive camping is available with a couple of pit toilets at the major trailheads. If you think you're a competent technical rider, come here and find out.

Review: Really fun ride. I rode the whole thing and not sure how it gets a difficult rating though as it is fairly flat with nothing overly technical. I was there at the end of September and it had rained very heavily a couple of days earlier. You could not even drive to the trail head without getting stuck...saw an abandoned Range Rover sunk up to its axles. This actually turned out to be a bonus as I was staying in Springdale and it forced me to ride up to the trails vs drive. You could pick your line through the heavy mud ok. There was a hill called "crybaby hill" on the road up. Not only was I crying but also sucking my thumb like a baby by the time I got to the top. One of those climbs that is pure pain but once you get to the top you feel like a million bucks and the ride down it at the end of the day was so much fun.

Review: Excellent trail spent 4 1/2 riding and didn't want it to end. Take time to go to the the point the view is worth the ride. The rock formations were unbelievable. Everything was very well marked. I have rode Park City, Moab, and 18 road. This trail might have topped then all. Went the weekend before Thanksgiving a little chilly but hotel rates were cheap. Stayed in Springdale, also road Hurricane Rim which was fun. Eat at Oscar's they have amazing breakfasts.

Review: Best trail ever. Fun single track, lots of technical rock, great views. Gooseberry has easy, intermediate and advanced trails that all meet in the same amazing place. It doesn't get any better
