Cholla II Loop (Northern Warner Valley)
This 10.8-mile loop is located in Warner Valley, south of Hurricane and east of St. George. The trail is intermediate-technical, with a couple of short advanced sections. At an altitude of 3600 feet, this area is only marginally cooler than St. George. In mid-summer, we recommend an early morning start time. This loop is a fast ride. It starts with a few sand pits, some sorta-technical slickrock, and a 300-vertical climb in the first two miles. Then there's a steep doubletrack plunge back to the valley, followed by fast cruising. A conditioned rider can hammer this loop in under an hour.

Getting there (Southbound, through Hurricane): Get off I-15 at the Toquerville/ La Verkin exit and head south to Hurricane. Turn south at the Chevron Station in Hurricane (700 West). Go south 2 miles and turn right at 2060 South. (If you arrive at a T-intersection, with a right turn going into the airport, you went too far.) Follow the road west of the airport and past the Sky Ranch to end of the pavement at a cattleguard. (About 6 miles, GPS N 37 05.425' W 113 18.696'.) Keep straight on the biggest and leftmost of 3 roads that fork after the cattleguard. Continue another 2.2 miles on gravel to a junction at GPS N 37 03.501' W 113 18.375' and turn right. Just 100 yards later, turn right onto a small doubletrack. After another 100 yards note a doubletrack going right across a catch-basin levee. That's the trail. Park here, GPS N 37 03.467' W 113 18.547.
