Left BC early AM, Saturday March 5th. We had breakfast at the Cracker Barrel in St. George and crossed the freeway on Bluff St. and started the day's riding with the Zen Trail.



After a DT climb you hit the fun and scenic stuff.



Mark on his 40 pound plus FR bike was on his game all day.




Don't forget to duck



You can see more trails down below.



First-timers riding the Zen Trail. Mark, Ken and Carl.



Done with most of the climbing, heading towards the fun stuff. Yes, that is a double-crown fork on Mark's bike.



Carl having fun on the Secret Harris Trail at Gooseberry Mesa.



It's a good idea to wear shin guards and long-sleeved jerseys on the Secret Harris just like what utahmountainbiking.com suggests because of the overgrown bushes/plants.



Taking a breather after about 4 miles on the Secret Harris Trail.

We finished the last 3 miles of the ride in the dark. Even with lights. it was tough finding the connector from Secret Harris to the South Rim Trail.

I will try to post some videos in the next few days.;)

Nice day trip. I'm planning something like that for the end of the month.
The sandy parts on Secret Harris were definitely rideable this time. Looks like there hasn't been much traffic for awhile except for some cows. There should be some tire tracks still in the dirt singletrack sections that you will be able to follow by the time you get to the Goose.;)

Made a neat Zen video the other day that pretty much lays down the goodness of zen in 2 minutes.

We always enjoy Southern Utah. So many different places to ride. The scenery is just awesome.:thumbsup:

Great video. What video editing software do you use btw?

Gooseberry Mesa At Night

Good thing there weren't any hungry mountain lions on the mesa that night. We would've been easy dinner:eek: .

Just moved to Washington, Utah from Santa Cruz, left my nomad at home (which I quickly realized I shouldve brought that bike as a priority), but can ride my v10 like its nobodys business..

NEED SOME RIDING BUDDIES! looking into more of the freeride, drop, jump, chute, technical stuff, but anything is good! someone who lives in the ST. George area let me know if you want to ride!

Found the Downhill trail over by Indian Springs and hiked and biked it by myself, but need some guys to ride with, hit all the features, but was pretty sketchy not having someone to lead you in!

Send me an email, drop me a line! Thanks - Austin S. :thumbsup:

The guys on the Utah forum should be able to hook you up (shelbster, wasea/Team Sanchez, STT Guy, etc.). Quentin and the guys at OTE have regular shop rides on Saturday usually at Little Creek, weather and road conditions permitting.

Your V10 would be at home at Brian Head but unless you like skiing, it won't be rideable for a few more months. You can always drive 2 hours plus down here to Bootleg Canyon for some world-class DH trails.:thumbsup:
