A friend of our shot this great video of a great mountain bike trail in St George called Suicidal Tendencies. It’s a trail that can be found west of St George near Santa Clara. It’s a fantastic trail to ride as the views and the area you’ll be in are beautiful and well worth the effort.
Don’t let the name scare you, you’ll see from the video that this trail does offer some drops and places that are dangerous, but for the most part it’s a fairly straight forward mountain bike trail.
When you reach the trail head you’ll have some decisions to make as there are a several tails offered from the same spot, in fact one called Barrel Roll is one of my favorites.
If you take on Suicidal Tendencies and reach the top you’ll be greeted with a view you probably weren’t prepared for, or didn’t know was there. That’s what I experienced when I rode it, as I came up over the bench and saw the lush green valley below with the Santa Clara river flowing through it I was shocked. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was.
There are some fabulous mountain bike trails in St George, so many it would be hard to name them all. But if we were going to rank them, the Suicidal Tendencies mountain bike trail would be in the top 10 for certain. So if you’re looking for a trail to take on, a trail to master in southern Utah, then this trail is worth the ride.
