Overview

A great loop on a mix of singletrack, doubletrack and road with incredible views of Zion National Park.

Description

This course begins immediately with singletrack horse trail that will soon connect with an ATV trail. You'll cross paths with the Yellow Loop and continue up the trail through the trees, gaining 400 feet in about a mile and half.

The ATV trail turns into a road for less than half a mile where you'll then turn unto a new section of singletrack. Enjoy the ride as you race through the switchbacks, going up and down through the trees. At mile 3, you'll get off of the singletrack and make your way downhill. Be sure to take a look around as this will be the highest point of the red loop and the view of Zion National Park is beautiful!

The trail will lead you to the water station where you can hydrate and fill up for the remainder of your run. The rest of the loop is fairly flat so enjoy as you head back to the village with a mixture of singletrack, doubletrack, and road.
