Gooseberry Mesa, Hurricane UT

Located adjacent to Zion National Park, the views of Zion's towering rock formations were spectacular (see photo 4). The trails themselves were the most challenging of the trip, taking over 2-hours to complete 11 miles. The trail often would climb near vertical rock formations, only to turn sharply and descend with a seemingly unridable steepness. Much of the ride was completed in a standing position to facilitate movement from a climbing posture to a descending, behind the seat position. The constant up and down flow of the trail was exhausting, and towards the end, as fatigue begin to set in crashes became more frequent. Fortunately, no rush trips to the hospital.
