Gooseberry Secret Harris Trail
The Harris Secret Trail is one of the toughest trails on Gooseberry. It's 6.2 miles in length, but the shortest ride that incorporates the trail (assuming a DT bailout) is at least 10 miles. The ride described here is 13.3 miles, and is tough. There's about 1000 feet of climbing, in short brutal bursts. The trail is narrow, twisting, overgrown, and has non-stop technical features. No cruising. And on the south rim, there's soft surface and some boggy sand between tech features.

13.3 Parking
Getting there from Hurricane or St.George: As you pass through Hurricane heading east on Highway 9, turn right at the Highway 59 sign. One block later, turn left and drive out of town. About 15 minutes later, you'll pass a gas station on the left-hand side, then some fields. Watch for a "Scenic Byway" sign, and turn left onto a dirt road (14.8 miles from the turnoff in Hurricane). Two miles later, just as you reach the mountain, the Gooseberry Mesa road turns off on your left. Another 3.6 miles after the turnoff, take the left fork. Now stay on the bigger road, ignoring any forks. 1.1 miles later, you'll cross a cattle guard. Park there. The South Rim trail begins along the fence on the left side of the road.
