DOWNHILL FLOW TRAIL COMING TO SAINT GEORGE AREA.

DOWNHILL FLOW TRAIL COMING TO SAINT GEORGE AREA.
With a little help from DMBTA, the BLM St. George Field Office was recently awarded a trail construction grant through the Utah Recreational Trails Program. They will get $60,000 from the State grant and will match it with another $60,000 with money collected from commercial guide permits, and fees from competitive events. These events pay for our new trails. We (DMBTA) also agreed to contribute a significant amount of volunteer time.


The trail will be a machine built one-way downhill flow trail on West Mountain Peak, and will be 8-10 miles long. West Mountain Peak is just south of the Shivwits Reservation on the west side of Highway 91 (Utah Hill). The trail will begin about 1.5 miles below the communications towers at the summit.
I’ve had a few questions about why this site was selected, and the answer is simple. This is the only suitable place on BLM land in Washington County that has the elevation and downhill distance for a trail like this.
