Mountain Biking in Zion – Gooseberry Mesa

Just outside of Zion National park is Gooseberry Mesa, a classic table-top mesa with a trail around the rim.  Absolutely a classic mountain bike ride and well worth seeking out.  Similar to getting to Zion NP, the best bet is to fly into St. George and rent a car, which is what we did (this trip was combined with canyoneering, a separate post).  For real hammerheads, I guess you could fly into Hurricane and ride the 20 miles to get to the trailhead.

Leap!
Easier than it looks
