Update 2012:  Got the word from Zion Cycles that there is a small singletrack network now on Grafton mesa.  Just the ride I was looking for.  Ended up doing a 7.5 mile loop on intermediate to expert terrain.  Took the loop clockwise which seemed to make sense.  Few nice drops, rollers, some berms and even a rock skinny and a gyno exam.   Hmmm I must be in the right place.  Builders did a great job with this little network, adding many options to the old DH line that ends down at grafton cemetery.  If you want something more epic you can combine this with the new gooseberry north rim singletrack.  Views from grafton are top notch, especially the view of pastry ridge..


Directions - From Springdale, go west on 9 to rockville exactly 4 miles from flanigans and take left on bridge road (clear Odometer at this point) , after driving over virgin river, take right on grafton road, at road fork go left and park shuttle car on small opening by tree..  Continue traveling uphill at about 5.2 miles +/- you will see a right thats a dirt road, this leads to grafton mesa but DONT take it!!  continue to mile 5.4 and take a right where you will see a 10 ' high dirt bank, see pictures..  On your bike travel up dirt road, it splits, go right and look for right on single track, hard to see..  If you kept going straight on FR, you will see open view..  Once on Single its easy to follow, there was a major right where a glimpse of trail goes straight (shown on map), work in progress??  GO right, immediate 2.85 foot drop, you hit the fire road and go left down to clearing, where trail skirts the edge..

Description - Great rocky technical single track at the top - RAW, secret trails feel, almost new england esque..  Fire road section was fun, kind of similar to porc rim, some rock, small airtime..  Killer views, unreall..  Last section started out exposed rocky slab, to boney off camber 1.5 track downhill..  Great technical skillz required, on the edge.  really crazy at the end, then smooth double track red dirt off camber, fast with some techs - watch your speed..  At the bottom, look around, some cool crazy lines, then picture frame jump was right on the main road, just keep following tracks downhill through a couple wash's till you get to grafton cemetery.. Take a right, 1 mile dirt road ride back to car..

Loops - Can ride as a shuttle, OR loop, or combine with nearby gooseberry.  Options are always good!
