I do know if you head out to one of the view points along Virgin Rim there are lots of cabins and private in-holdings. At least wrt to Strawberry Point.

As far as MTB trails, Thunder Mountain is about 45 miles away from Brian Head, but well worth the drive IMHO - https://www.mtbproject.com/trail/186...in-trail-33098

That looks like a great ride.

Thanks

Phil... agree that Thunder Mountain is a great trail. Done it a couple of times and the wife even liked it. Start at the bottom and pedal up the highway (not too bad of a climb) then leave pavement at the top to start the trail. Fun.

Thanks Gooseberry! Not being familiar with the area, where is "the rim"?

For what it's worth, we'll be stopping at Gooseberry Mesa for a night or 2 on the way out for some riding. I assume you've been there!?

Ride early and I have a couple must do rides. So yes Gooseberry is my favorite place to ride My SAR dog that has passed was named Gooseberry and why my handle. Morgan and Mike that did most the trails are very good friends in that area.

Now the cool ride out by Navajo lake area is not showing on my bike app but it starts south of Navajo lake and goes to the 14 along the rim.

I think you should look for the Virgin River Rim Trail. That's what it was called a long time ago when I rode it.

Twisted Forest is a short but must-see hike at Brian Head and there is dispersed camping in the vicinity.
