Mountain biking in St. George
Famous for the red rock beauty and the iconic slick rock of Utah, St. George has quickly become a popular destination for mountain biking in the USA. The region alone has many riding areas that can take days to explore. But if you’re looking for other adventures on the singletrack, St. George’s neighbors - Hurricane and Virgin - provide more riding styles and option for even longer off-road time.
For more challenging rides, why not visit the Hurricane Rim Loop which is located in La Verkin City, just 35 minutes from St. George? This is one of the two IMBA EPIC rides of Utah, featuring more than 22 miles of mind-blowing singletrack with magnificent vistas.
Wait no more, get your bike out and ride!
When to go
The southwestern section of Utah boasts clear skies year round. The outdoor temperatures are just a minor problem for a few months whenever summer comes and the heat can make riding unpleasant. Throughout the year, temperatures fluctuate between mid-fifties and low-eighties farenheit. On hotter summer days, you may want to start your ride early in the morning and finish before noon to avoid the high temperatures. Later in the day, you can spend time wandering the town or riding some mountain biking trails found in Pine Valley located above St. George. The higher elevations bring some cooler temperatures.
