Years ago, while attending school at Southern Utah University, I was able to explore much of Cedar City, but honestly, I’m WAY more adventurous now that I was before getting married and having kids. I’ve tried biking Razorback a few different times as was never very successful, but I was so excited to share Razorback trails with the kids!
I knew they would LOVE exploring the desert.
One thing we didn't expect was the amount of trash. Apparently, there were some squatters that just left everything there. Let's remember to do our part and keep our trails clean.
While we didn't take bikes, we did decide to explore all the hills around there.
Hiking up the “Razorback” part of the trail is beautiful!
It does have drops on either side, so it’s not for the faint of heart.
The local cross country team actually trains all through Razorback, which is probably why they are freaking awesome.
There are miles of trails, but we just went as far as the kids could go before it’s dark.
It’s a beautiful, technical biking trail, but if you just want to go explore, it's one of the best ways to see the beauty of Cedar City.

- I had a hard time finding a map point for the trailhead (because it's not maintained) but it's basically the first left turn that has a parking area if you are heading east of Cedar City. I'd say it's about .5 miles from the East Canyon Park. See this map.
- If you've gone to Red Rock Trailhead, you've gone too far.
- No bathrooms.
- It's not a maintained path.
- Watch out for bikers and hikers.
- Dog-Friendly, just clean up after them.
- No Water.
- Steep drop-offs, so watch your kids.
- Pack it in, Pack it out.
- Steep hills.
