More Cowbell

The More Cowbell trail creates one of the few beginner-level singletrack rides in the Hurricane area. So it deserves its own page. The More Cowbell trail is 2.5 miles in length, but you'll have to take JEM or Dead Ringer to get to it.

The trail is open year round, but lies on clay that can be damaged if ridden while wet. If there have been recent storms, check conditions with the local bike shop before going.

More Cowbell makes a nice ride for kids and beginners. We'll call the combined ride the White Ledges Loop, because it runs atop white ledges of Virgin Limestone. This little lariat loop is 3.4 miles in length, with less than 100 vertical feet of climbing (all very gradual).

When deciding about young children, realize there are cliffs nearby plus a couple of short sections where the trail sits on side-slope. Also, please note that this trail is not suitable for Burley-style bike trailers. The trailbuilders want More Cowbell to remain narrow singletrack, and trailers mess that up. (The JEM Doubletrack going northeast along the mesa from the upper JEM trailhead is actually a nice ride and is recommended for trailers and side-by-side riding.)
