Zion Mountain Biking
The Mountain Biking areas surrounding Zion National Park offers a wide range of trail systems for all abilities. The slick-rock of Gooseberry Mesa and Hurricane Rim Trails have become the areas most popular trails. During the summer heat we recommend traveling to the higher elevations where we will ride the Navajo Loop Trail or the Thunder Mountain Trail.
Guided Mountain Biking Options
Many of mountain biking trails in this area have been hand-made by the local biking community. In the early 90's they began to work together with the BLM and National Forest to create the established trail systems that are now a benefit to all.
Mountain Biking in Zion National Park is not allowed. Bikes are allowed on Parus Trail and on existing roads only. The Parus Trail is 2 miles long and runs from the visitor center/campgrounds to the canyon junction.
