BLM Winter Bucket List #19: Gooseberry Mesa National Recreation Trail, Utah, for Challenging Biking Terrain and Spectacular Views

BLM Winter Bucket List #19: Gooseberry Mesa National Recreation Trail, Utah, for Challenging Biking Terrain and Spectacular Views

 

Developed cooperatively in the late 1990’s, Gooseberry Mesa National Recreation Trail (NRT) is located in southern Utah’s red rock country, and received National Recreation Trail status in 2006. At an elevation of 5,200 feet, views from the mesa rims are spectacular. Rising to the north are the massive sandstone sentinels of Zion National Park. Spread out below the west rim is a panorama of colorful desert mesas and water carved canyons.

 

Deemed the “new cool kid in town” in the @KSLnews article “3 Compelling Reasons to Visit St. George This Winter,” BLM Utah’s Gooseberry Mesa offers exceptional riding year round!
