Timeline PhotosI wish you folks understood just how serious the consequences can be for damaging a barrier and going around it and why it's there to begin with.
If you get caught damaging a barrier to gain access to a restricted trail you can be fined up to $4000 - just having a machine wider than the the trail marked can cost you $400 even if the trail is only marked and not restricted by a barrier.
These 50" trails travel through "road-less" area's of the forest - these are "TRAILS" not roads. These were laws passed by Congress under the Clinton Administration.
Once these trails are frequented by machines wider than the trail allows they will be closed - permanently for everyone.
If you want to ride 50" trails please buy a machine that is 50" wide or less.
Utah is the Golden State for OHVs and we ALL must follow the rules or we are going to lose more trails - other states like Colorado are getting roads & trails closed on a regular basis. Please don't allow this to happen to us. ... See MoreSee Less
Hey friends this is a big deal! The fine folks at DMBTA are building a world class trail system that will maximize the terrain between St George and the base of Pine Mountain. There's a link here in this post where you can share your opinion with the Forrest Service. This is a critical phase in the process of getting approval. Please help out! ... See MoreSee Less
If you build it they will come
God bless Texas!We live in a time when many people believe there is no absolute truth—no absolute authority for right and wrong. So with that in mind, I realize that this is just my opinion, and I’m cool with just having an opinion! I love this sign at Emma Long. Yes, yes we all want easy trails; as a matter of fact, I prefer easier trails because that is where skills can be practiced with perfection instead of the rider being in the “survival mode.” Not much learning takes place in the survival mode. But when there is an advanced trail, why in the world should it be made easier?!?!?! I mean even the best riders in the world have to walk around some features. If we dumb down difficult features too much on an expert trail, then expert riders won’t waste their time with our trail systems. They will go somewhere else. Road bikers who I have talked to yearn to go to Europe to suffer on some of the toughest climbs that have been in the Tour. Imagine if riders found ways to make those climbs easier—why even try to climb them knowing they had been dumbed down from the way the racers in the Tour had to ride them?? ... See MoreSee Less
This is so exciting! Soon St George will have an epic downhill trail that ends in town.Anyone want a new world class trail network in St. George? It will be 45 miles of purpose built bike trails with almost 20 miles of downhill. The area is 7,000-5,000 feet elevation on Pine Valley Mountain. There is a perfect storm of events that have come together to make this possible. It goes out for environmental review this month, and with a little luck we can start building by November. We will post updates on how you can help over the summer. #dmbta ... See MoreSee Less
I’ll be making a trip back soon then!
"ends" sounds ominous...
5 Miles of Hell Work ProjectOn May 9th, the Sage Riders gathered to perform a work project on the Dick Brass Trail System. Around 40 members and friends of the Sage Riders painted the entire 5 Miles of Hell Trail and performed trail rehab on portions of the trail where people were getting off the designated route. We had enough help on hand to also paint the top half of the Red Trail. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for sharing!
This is awesome! This could take St George to the next level.This is what the new trail on Pine Vally Mountain will look like with approximately 15 miles of xc loops and 15 miles of DH trail. Don’t misunderstand me. Not one inch of trail is built, but we have donated 324 hours designing and flagging this trail so that the Forest Service can start the environmental evaluation process. With a little luck we can start building next year. This will be a game changer for our area. We will need everyone’s help to make this happen. Thank you Norm Nielsen, Rick Fernald, and Teena Christopherson for all off your help. And thanks to Nick and Charity at the Forest Service for supporting this project. ... See MoreSee Less
