Hidden in the broken and tortured landscape of Southern Utah lies a broken and treacherous MTB trail. It’s namesake is the old Mormon pioneer trail that was carved into the escarpment by Nephi Johnson to facilitate travel between Toquerville and what was then known as Pocketville (Now called the Town of Virgin). This steep, craggy, winding wagon trail became known as Nephi’s Twist. Not to be outdone by Nephi Johnson, a few local modern day pioneers with pick axes and shovels scraped a new and even steeper route down the Mesa; not meant for foot or wagon due to its exposure and narrow ridges, but to descend on their bikes. What was once barely suitable for wagon travel is now a freeride playground. Our Nephi’s Twist blend is as bold and complex as these trails and the people who created them. We lift our mugs to those who blaze the trails for others to follow.
