Distance: 2.2 miles round-trip

TRAIL SUMMARY

Pioneer Rim is a great way to ride a quick trail without having to drive far out of town. The highlights of the trail are the slick rock, and being able to ride over the famous “Crack in the Rock” near Dixie Rock. This is an easy and short trail that may be suitable for kids that have some mountain bike experience. I love being able to ride over the St George Narrows while people hike through the narrows underneath. People are pretty impressed that you can ride a mountain bike over the crack, but it’s not hard at all, if you keep your wheels straight your bike will roll right over it. This trail has some dirt double track if the loop is taken, or you can turn around once the slick rock ends and take the same route back to the trail head if desired, either way is fun!
