Trail Directions
Go to St. George Utah. Look up, just north of town and you'll see a big red rock with the word DIXIE painted on it. Drive to it and park just behind it, kind of north west of the rock. Lock your car and ride the road, north west, for about 2 miles until you come to a silver cattle gate on the left side of the road. It's actually the second gate on the left and it's located about half way down the desent that leads to an intersection with another paved road. The gate usally has a Red Cliff Desert Preserve sign on it, unless the red necks are board, then there will be a sign with lots of holes in it. Jump the gate and follow the single track and rock carrins from there. Pay attention and look for little trails spuring off the roads. If you can't find the trail head ask a local bicycle patrol officer, they all know the way. Also go to Bicycles Unlimited 100 E. 100 S. They can help.

Summary:
Since there are about 6 or 7 different trails in the Red Hills dessert preserve, and each of the main trail heads is host to two or three trails I'm not sure exactly which trail this is, but I would give all the single tracks the same rating of about a 4 and all the fire roads nothing higher than a 2

Recommended Route:
Owens Loop, City Creek, and Pioneer Park, are the best trails. Go to one of the main trail heads look at the map and go from there

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Broken Mesa, Green valley

Summary:
Great easy trail to ride with short amount of time. Just riding around the slick rock palying follow the leader is great. The view of St. George is great also. While your there take your repelling gear and go off the DIXIE sign, or go through the slot canyon and see how far you can go. All in all it's a great place to spend some time. If Your looking for more trails or maps, head to Bicycles Unlimted.

Recommended Route:
follow the above directions from fronk.

Church rock, GooseBerry, Green Valley Loop, Church Rock to Red cliffs.
