Hurricane Rim Biking Trail
The Hurricane Rim Biking Trail encapsulates the beauty of the desert landscape and follows the gorgeous canyons of the Virgin River. At any point in the ride, bikers experience incredible vistas from every direction with Zion’s wilderness as the backdrop.
The basic ride is a 7.2 mile (14.4 miles total) out-and-back trail beginning from Hurricane Hill. It is rated as hard intermediate and riders should expect many technical sections, fast downhills, and steep inclines. Although difficult, this ride is rewarding and engaging!
From Hurricane, drive up the hill on S.R. 59 for a mile to the lookout above the city. The parking area for the trail is shared with cell towers and other trail parking. Locate the Hurricane Rim trailhead that goes east up the hill, outside of the fence.

Trail and the Gould’s Wash trail. Adding either of these routes will lengthen the ride significantly. The trail is also accessible from various points in the whole loop.
