CHURCH ROCKS TRAIL – ST GEORGE, UT

Difficulty Level: Intermediate

Distance: 6 miles round-trip

TRAIL SUMMARY

Church Rocks is the mini Moab of St George. With tons of slickrock, drops, and fast descents, this is one of my favorite trails close to town! This is an intermediate trail with some reasonably techy decents. One of my favorite things about Church Rocks is that a few of the entrances and exits go under the freeway in drainage tubes that are big enough to ride in.

DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD

Get Directions to Grapevine Trail Head. Head north on I-15 for 4.2 miles and take Exit 13 to Washington Parkway. Turn left and cross the freeway, then park in the dirt parking lot on the right. Ride your bike up the dirt road (Grapevine Trail) and continue straight at the first right about .5 mile which will put you on Prospector Trail. Prospector will eventually fork, and at this point you can either turn left or right. If you turn left, you’ll follow the trail for about 200 ft, then turn right and you’re on Church Rocks. Turning right will lead you right to Church Rocks, though my preferred way is turning left.

Get Directions to Maverik Trail Head. Head north on I-15 for 4.2 miles and take Exit 13 to Washington Parkway. Turn right on Washington Parkway. At the traffic circle take the 3rd exit onto 1100 E. Park on the side of the road and get ready to ride!
