DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD

Get Directions to Trail Head. From St George, go West to Santa Clara, and drive through most of the town. Turn left onto Gates Ln, or just before the Jacob Hamblin house. Go straight until you reach the dirt road, then either park if you don’t have a good 4wheel drive vehicle, or continue on the road for approximately .25mi or until you reach the fork in the road. Take the first right, and continue until you reach the Cove Wash Trailhead.

From the trailhead I usually ride the loop clockwise by starting on Sidewinder which will eventually turn right into Barrel Roll. This trail can also be done counter-clockwise.
