Red Canyon Trail - Cedar City North riding area
There are a confusing number of Red Canyons and Red Mountains in Utah. This one is in the Cedar City North mountain biking trail system, in the hills east of Cedar City and north of Highway 14. This page describes a loop ride that climbs Thor's Hideout, descends Red Canyon, then loops back via the Red Mountain trails.
Trail conditions, connections, and alignments will change. Use this guide at your own risk.

Getting there, Highway 14 Trailhead: On Cedar City's Main Street, turn east (towards the mountains) on Center Street, Highway 14. As you pass The Red Hill at 1.5 miles from Main Street, turn left into primitive parking. Hug the mountain edge as you pedal toward the entrance to the canyon and begin climbing.
Thunderbird Gardens TH: When southbound on I-15, take the first Cedar City exit (the same one you'd use to head for Three Peaks) and turn left towards the mountains. The road will make a broad turn to the south to become Main Street in Cedar City. Turn left at 900 North (it will be just as you reach the cemetery on the right-hand side). When you reach the golf course buildings, the pavement ends. Keep straight ahead onto gravel road. Pass a couple of flood-control basins, driving 1.2 miles from Main Street. Park in the fenced white-gravel trailhead area and start your ride eastbound by the trail kiosk.
