St George, Utah is a great destination for a campervan camping trip in the fall and spring. You can combine a visit to the St. George area with a visit to Zion National Park to get the complete red rock experience.
Mountain Bike Trail Suggestions:
Gooseberry Mesa: This loop really put the St. George area on the map. On this ride you will never have any sustained climbing, but instead lots of little ups that will test your bike handling skills as you roll over miles of slickrock. There is a cutoff road if you need to shorten your ride.
Hurricane Rim Loop: This is one of my favorite loops in the St. George area since you ride along the rim of the canyon for the Virgin river. The trail along the canyon can be technical in spots, but the views are great. As you ride away from the river the trail smooths out and flows nicely across the desert.
Little Creek Mesa: If you want to get a little more solitude then the Little Creek Mesa trail system would be a good destination. The trails are fun, but you need to be careful finding the parking lot since it can be confusing. The trail system is similar to Gooseberry Mesa, but the trails are a little more primitive.
Hiking Trail Suggestions:
There are lots of hiking options in Zion National Park to explore, but you can also find good options around St. George outside of the Park. One of the best places to hike outside of the park is at Red Cliffs Reserve.
Red Reef Trail: This is a great canyon hike with some amazing views as you ascend into the canyon. The trail starts from the Red Canyon Campground just a little ways off of I-15. You can go as far as you want and turn around when the trail gets too challenging.
