Recommended Users: Mountain Bikers, Hikers. Singletrack trail. 5.9 miles in length. Difficulty: Extreme. The South Rim Trail is demanding. From steep drop-offs, difficult climbs, sharp turns, and narrow ledges, this trail offers a lot of challenges for the experienced rider. Sections of this trail are known as “God’s Skateboard Park,” “Cattle Grate,” and “Rattlesnake Rim,” which all tell a little something about the conditions. We give it an Extreme rating for its exposure along the rim and the potential to get into serious trouble (or fun). There are a couple of bail-outs spots at 1.55 miles to the White Trail and again at 2.65 miles on a gravel road that leads back to the White Trail.
