Wire Mesa
Wire Mesa lies just to the east of Grafton Mesa and a couple of miles northeast of Gooseberry Mesa. The Wire Mesa trail is an intermediate-level singletrack loop. The loop is 7.3 miles in length, but quicker rides can be done by using the mesa dirt road to bypass one side of the mesa singletrack loop. There's relatively little climbing, so the ride is easy aerobically. While the riding season is year-round, the mesa is reached via a dirt road that becomes non-passable after heavy rains.
Trail conditions, alignments, and connections will change. Use this guide at your own risk. 2016.

Getting there, from Rockville: In La Verkin, turn toward Zion National Park on Highway 9. When you get to Rockville, drive until you're seeing the end of town then turn south (right) on Bridge Road. Cross the Virgin River on the old bridge. Follow the road as it veers right (west). At the fork in the road 1.5 miles later, turn left and drive south uphill on the dirt Smithsonian Butte Scenic Byway (may or may not have a sign). Zero your odometer. When the road seems to level out a little 1.5 miles uphill, pass the Big Fatty Mesa road on your right, then the Horse Valley road on the left. At 1.9 miles, watch for the Wire Mesa dirt road on your right. Keep left at the first fork (camping on the right) and find the circle 0.1 miles from the Byway. Park here. At the northeast corner of the circle, on the east side of the road, find singletrack heading northeast.
Getting there, from Hurricane: 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. Keep straight on the Byway. The road change directions from north to east and begins descending. 2.9 miles from the Gooseberry turnoff, watch for a small dirt road on the left. Go 0.1 miles to the parking circle as above.
