Warner Valley Loop  (Cholla Challenge Trail)
This new course is located in Warner Valley, south of Hurricane and east of St. George. The Warner Valley Loop is eleven miles of singletrack full of whoops and wash crossings. There's about 300 feet of elevation change. At an altitude of 3100 feet, this area is only marginally cooler than St. George. In mid-summer, we recommend an early morning start time. See a second riding page for riding notes on the main Honeymoon -Temple Trail Loop (Loop 1).
