Barrel Roll Trail
Adress: Ivins, Utah
Recommended Users: Mountain Bikers, Hikers. Singletrack trail. 5.79 miles in length. Difficulty: Moderate/More. Barrel Roll is a loop ride that can be ridden in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction (although it is easier to tackle the obstacles riding in a clockwise direction). What makes this trail special is its close proximity to the communities of Santa Clara and Ivins, yet when on the trail suburban life does not intrude. Views along the trail vary from the spectacular Red Mountain and Pine Valley Mountains, to the Santa Clara River corridor, and the desert mesas of the Santa Clara River Reserve. Keep an eye out for the trail’s namesake the Barrel Cactus (Ferocactus acanthodes) that litters the rocky slopes.
