St. George is synonymous with outdoor adventure. Mountain biking is no exception. Besides the nearly 300 miles of trails, we're proud to now have the only year-round bike park in the state of Utah,” said Mayor Jon Pike. “For years visitors would ask us where the bike park was located given the variety of mountain bike trails in the area. Snake Hollow St. George Bike Park is the first park of its kind south of the Wasatch Front and was built for locals and everyone who loves to ride southern Utah.”
St. George has long been a destination for mountain biking due to the quantity and scenic nature of the trails, in addition to the mild winter temperatures which allow for year-long riding. Yet St. George had been without a bike skills park. Now that need is filled.
Snake Hollow encompasses 80 acres of land in west St. George, located primarily on the west side of the park, with some additional courses on the east side along Tuweap Drive. There are hundreds of features and four skills zones: Rattler’s Revenge (dirt jump zone), Snake Den (pump track and skills loop), Venom Drops (gravity skills) and Sidewinder Slopestyle (gravity jump trails).
The park includes a large pavilion, restrooms, paved trails, utility connections and a gravel parking lot. As more funding emerges, another pavilion, more restrooms and paved parking are scheduled to be added.
“We have seen the mountain bike scene explode in St. George over the past decade. As a city we realize that it's a big reason people are moving to and visiting our area,” said Supportive Services Director Marc Mortensen. “Creating a legitimate bike park to complement what we already have was a no-brainer — and what a great opportunity to get kids outdoors and exercising.
