| Honeymoon - Temple Trail (Loop 1 of
This new course is located in Warner Valley, south of Hurricane and east of St. George. There are two separate loops: Loop 1 ("Honeymoon Loop") is six miles of fast roller-coaster terrain. There's about 200 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 Warner Valley Loop (Loop 2).
