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.

One of the most beautiful rides ever. My favorite trail in southern Utah.

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.
