Trail Description
About this trail
Main ride is a 9 mile loop. About 8 miles into loop T. Right is quickest way out left adds about 2 miles thru a very tech canyon and more stunts.
There's also a large freeride slickrock area east of the loop.
The loop is mainly riding slickrock and singletrack thru many different tech moves. Follow cairns. Less difficult than Gooseberry it has better flow and is an amazingly fun trail. For about 2 miles you'll ride very near a cliff in spots with awesome views towards Gooseberry Mesa and the Pine Valley Mountains. 6000', higher than Goose here you're in the trees a little and many stunt areas, play!

Review: This trail has a good mix of slick rock, packed dirt, & a few challenging obstacles to make the ride interesting. The cliff edge scenic views are awesome. Take lots of water during the hot days.

Review: I loved this trail. We went counter clockwise on the North Loop. Lots of slick rock and fun obstacles. We just had a blast playing around on the rocks. Beautiful views of Zion's National Park.

Review: Holy hell! What an awesome ride! We did the main loop to magic carpet ride back, just under 10mi and some incredible views with some of the most challenging stuff I've hit yet. This is not a ride for the balance challenged that's for sure.

Review: Fantastic trail but bring along a gps with co-ordinates. A few idiot locals have gotten rid of route markers and cairns to keep riders out but that instead causes many riders to unknowingly ride off trail and into potentially sensitive areas. Idiots. Many archeologically sensitive sites, so ride smart. Other then that it's a complete blast to ride.

Review: Great ride, compliments Gooseberry very well. Very similar with some larger patches of open slick rock that are a blast to explore. Be mindful of the archeological sites as many have been ruined. Bring a GPS. Many of the locals have been getting rid of the cairns to discourage riding there. Some sections are well marked and others are tough to navigate so a GPS will get you back. If your in the Zion area this is a must ride.

Review: Rode as an OTE shop ride - recommended for the knowledgeable guide, and others to ride with.

Sensitive and delicate area, including petroglyphs and other anthropology. Moves are under way to formalise the trail system, but it takes time.

Review: While Gooseberry gets all the press, Little Creek Mesa is my favorite trail in the area. It's part Gooseberry but also has alot of sections that are twisty dirt singletracks and then there is PLENTY of exposure as well. This trail will never make it to the top of the list because it isn't the easiest to find, isn't the easiest to navigate and it's too sketchy to ride for 90% of the planet. Tood bad for those guys because this ride is truly EPIC!!

Review: For much of this ride, I felt like Frodo navigating through Mordor. Slickrock as far as the eye can see, some marked with cairns, some not. Some skinny singletrack hugging cliffs with big exposure, some mellow cruising through the woods. If they ever develop and add signage to the whole mesa, this will be the next great biking destination, rivaling its neighbor across the valley - Gooseberry Mesa. You WILL get lost, you WILL have fun.
