With just over 24 miles, this is the biggest loop that Southern Utah has to offer. The loop combines the JEM, Goulds Rim and Hurricane Rim trails. We recommend starting on the Virgin side of the JEM as this puts the big climbs in the middle and allows you to end with the giggly roller coaster that is the JEM trail.
From St. George, head North on I-15 and take the Hurricane Exit 16. Follow Highway 9 through Hurricane and La Verkin. Turn right to stay on Highway 9 as it goes toward Zion National Park. Just as you enter Virgin, turn right onto Sheep Bridge Road. Go over the river and take the first right and follow the dirt road to the trail.
