This is my favorite trail in Southern Utah, and one of my top five in Utah (the others being Whole Enchilada and Captain Ahab in Moab, and Wasatch Crest and Bobsled in Salt Lake City). It's a challenge, but the entire trail is ridable (or walkable if you're uncomfortable with certain maneuvers), and it's as rewarding as they come (assuming you find riding challenging features rewarding!). Only complaint: wayfinding can be a challenge, to say the least. You're pretty much guaranteed to get lost a time or two until you learn the trail, but that's true of several trails in the St. George area. All things considered, Zen is a great trail and one I never miss when I'm in St. George.
Barrel Roll (although Zen is more technical and has a better descent); Gooseberry (although Zen is more aerobically challenging and lacks the views of Gooseberry)
