The Legacy of Grafton - From Ghost Town to Mountain Bike Heaven 2

Join ENVE rider Logan Whitehead as he explores the legend that is Grafton, Utah.



Perhaps Vital MTB's favorite trail in the area, Grafton Mesa offers up enough gnar for just about anyone. Up top, there's some rolling singletrack that twists between sagebrush and over some tricky rock piles. About halfway down the trail gets really exciting, mixing some high speed rock hopping interspersed with a handful of optional drops and jumps. Diving into the valley below, the rock bashing kicks up quite a few notches. As you reach the bottom of the valley, speeds increase big time and lead way to some fun optional lines on the immediate sides of the trail. When you get to the bottom, keep an eye out for a few big hits you've likely seen in the movies, including the one Logan sends in this video by Steve Lloyd. Route finding can be a little difficult in the middle section, so it's best to tag along with a local if you can. Shuttle it, ride up, or make the jaunt from nearby Gooseberry Mesa. Watch a first person view of the trail here, and be sure to catch Vital's guide to Southwest Utah for more great mountain bike adventures.
