Great up and down trail. Easy ride back on the white road when the wind started blowing hard.

This is a big area with lots of loop options, mostly being used by mountain bikers and folks in ORVs, although it was pretty quiet this cold morning. The ORV trails are probably doable in a high clearance vehicle like my RAV-4 if you are careful and the main dirt road off of Rt 59 is fine for a passenger car. I followed the marked mountain biking trails for some of the time and that was much more interesting than walking on the dirt roads. The views are panoramic in all directions. You can park at different trailheads depending on your plans. There was one place where I took a wrong turn onto an ORV trail and ended up parking 2 miles before I should have, but you won't have that problem if you pay better attention to the map.

Really fun mtn biking trail. Second favorite after guacamole. Definitely harder than guacamole. Had to get off my bike about 50+ times! But fun ride and super cool rock features to ride on

Went on a one-nighter trip with close friends! Found a great spot to set up camp and we had fun exploring around all the rocks and looking out at the great view on the cliffs and to our north we could see Zion! Beautiful hike!

This is a great hike to go on, if you do go try and stay in the center of the trail. I almost got bit by a rattlesnake that was right next to the trail, but other than that it was magnificent.

Amazing scenery! If you're a mountain biker then you already know that Gooseberry is internationally famous ... but it's underrated as a hiking trail in my opinion! If you're looking for a scenery-filled, mild terrain nature walk smattered with petrified wood, fossils, and blooming cacti showcasing flowers of all colors then do it! It's unique to anything you'll hike in northern Utah. But BE CAREFUL for rattlesnakes!! About a mile down the dirt road from the White trailhead we encountered a Navajo Green Rattlesnake (took the attached picture from inside our SUV thank goodness) which is the most toxic pit viper in North America! And it was mean as hell and was fully poised to attack our GMC Terrain! Incredibly rare experience but possible!

Great trail, relatively flat which is a difficult thing to find out in Utah. The trail has a very nice flow and rhythm to it and the trail has a fair amount of wildlife on it. Biking on this trail is great for any rider difficulty and has a little bit of many terrain surfaces such as rock, dirt and some loose sand. I highly recommend this trail to anybody who wants a good time.

The gooseberry trails are mostly for mountain biking .... it can be dangerous to be a pedestrian in these trails on busy weekends. During the winter it's nice and you will practically have it to yourself on week days.
