Lightning Switch and Ghost Flats trails
The Lightning Switch trail is located just uphill from the Thunderbird Gardens trailhead one mile east of Cedar City. The trail forks off the Ghost Flats trail just 0.2 miles from the trailhead, then climbs to meet the Ghost Flats trail uphill just below the ridgeline. Lightning Switch itself is 2.4 miles, and with Ghost Flats as a downhill the overall ride will be 4.5 miles. The climb is strenuous, best for strong well-conditioned riders. The downhill will vary with trail conditions, but requires at least upper-intermediate skill.
Trail conditions, connections, and alignment will change. Use this guide at your own risk. UtahMountainBiking 2017

Getting there, Thunderbird 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. The fork to Lightning Switch singletrack is 0.2 miles uphill on your left as you climb the broader trail.
