Wire Mesa sits just a few miles from its older sibling- Gooseberry Mesa, and offers the same great views and riding on a smaller scale. The trail moves along the edges of sheer cliffs at some spots offering spectacular views of the beginning of Zion Canyon. I like this area because it has some small trees and is more mountainous than St George, so it’s a good way to mix things up. There are some technical spots along the trail, most of which offer an easy trail option next to it. Wire Mesa is a great way to experience the technicality of Gooseberry Mesa combined with the flow of Jem.
