I have to admit, I walked almost as much of the Guacamole Mountain Bike Trail as I rode. After years of being afraid of mountain biking, I finally got the courage a year ago to get back on the saddle. I’ve found some awesome trails all over the state of Utah. I’m learning that it’s okay if I have to get off my bike and walk a little bit.
The Guacamole Trail is located in Virgin, Utah just outside of Zion National Park. It sits on top of a mesa overlooking the Virgin River and there are some stunning views all around. The trail is a mix of single track through juniper, pinion and brush and open rock riding. It is rated upper-intermediate with a section near the southeast corner of the loop that is advanced technical. This is where I did most of my walking. What I liked about the trail is that my husband and son could find plenty of technical areas to keep them challenged while I hung back on the easiest parts of the trail. What I found the most challenging is what I like to refer to as blind corners.
