We started at the JEM trailhead off Rte 59. Mostly easy and flat with desert landscape and beautiful views of the red and yellow cliffs and mesas. No shade. Great for dogs but a lot of the trail loop has sharp drop off edges. Popular with mountain bikers.

Wasn’t very impressed at all with these trails. Started at trail head near virgin and turned around after about 2 miles as just wasn’t very fun. Then headed up to main trailhead that had the jem Dh course. Wasn’t impressed either. Wasn’t very dh to us at all. Just cross country trails with nothing fun. Of course impressive views everywhere can’t deny that! And easy trailhead access unlike many other off road drives we had to do to access.

MUCH preferrred the trails at guacamole, gooseberry and wire Mesa. Those were amazing and fun!

The trail begins along the Virgin River and then stays on the rim of a number of tributaries. Not that difficult of a hike but there are plenty of ups and downs to keep it interesting. I took the loop with the Virgin River Dam and it added some more scenery. It was truly enjoyable.
