The Whole Guacamole

Overview

Right next door to Zion National Park, the Guacamole promises to give you an unforgettable trail party in Utah.

The Whole Guacamole is a combination ride of Guacamole, Holy Guacamole, Salt on the Rim, and Lime. Either those who name the trails are fans of food or they have a great sense of humor! (For those who don’t know, guacamole is a Mexican dish of crushed avocado mixed with tomatoes, onions, and chilies). But after the trail, you’ll get their point.

Whole Guacamole has a little bit for everyone. It’s a fantastic mountain biking feast of diverse singletrack tastes and textures, flavored with spectacular views of the West Temple, Mount Kinesava, and the Pine Valley Mountains. If you are riding after the rain, you can even smell Whole Guacamole thanks to the beautiful sagebrush and juniper. Trust us, this ride will wow you from A to Z.

Final words…Bon appétit!

Terrain

Lots of slick rock type riding as well as technical features.

Access

Start from Guacamole trailhead on Dalton Washington Road.

Food and drink

Drinking water is unavailable near the mesa, so bring your own.

More details

Generally, people ride the loops clockwise but they can be ridden from both ends.

Whole Guacamole starts on slickrock and then move to singletrack. As you ride further out, the ride begins to throw out technical riding features. The singletrack here is very nice with gravelly type trail tread.

Further info

Dalton Wash Rd off Rte 9 can be very thick with dust. If it is wet, it’s not a good idea to drive to the trailhead as the road gets extremely steep and rutted.

Also, trail navigation is challenging in some areas. The small rock cairns can help you find your way.
