Southern Utah is known to have some of the gnarliest downhill riding and Nephi’s Twist is the perfect example of this. The little-known trail is full of jumps, drops, berms, and exposed ridgelines that will be a thrill for even the most experienced riders! That being said, this is a highly technical trail and extreme caution should be taken before riding it– a full face helmet and protective gear are highly recommended and it should never be ridden alone. This is a downhill specific trail so it is advised to shuttle it with two vehicles.
Kentucky Lucky Chicken is an awesome techy trail super close to town. With techy rocky terrain around every corner and some steep drop-offs, this is a trail for more experienced riders. There are some great views of St George and the Webb Hill radio towers throughout the ride, and some jumps off to the side at one section for those who are brave enough! You can either ride the loop clockwise or counterclockwise, but I prefer clockwise.
From first timers to seasoned riders, Bear Claw Poppy offers a network of trails ranging from easy to difficult, making it possible for beginners to ride with experienced riders as they can all stay close together while riding a slightly different trail. The bottom half of the trail, starting at Navajo Dr., is rated easy to moderate, and the top (from Clavicle hill to the Three Fingers of Death) is rated easy to difficult. Bear Claw Poppy is a directional trail, so follow the signs to avoid congestion.
