Gooseberry Mesa. The mountain biking trails on Gooseberry Mesa, 14 miles south of Hurricane, are not well traveled, which is good news and bad news. On the plus side, there are not hordes of fat-tire fanatics to spoil your view of the pristine desert wilderness. However, the trail itself, through gulches and canyons, and across slickrock, can be hard to follow. At most major challenges along the path, there are easier alternatives if you lose your nerve. Come here for solitary and technical single-track challenges. Gooseberry Mesa Rd., off Rte. 59, Hurricane, UT.
