Trail Overview

This dirt trail is entirely within the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument and goes along the wilderness boundary of the Vermillion Cliffs, offering excellent views of the Paria Canyon along the rim of the canyon. Starting on the west side, it spurs off of Cedar Mountain Road, heads directly for the canyon view, and gets very scenic. As it continues east, this rim road has easy curves through pinyon pine trees and bushes on a hardpacked mix of dirt and sand. It doesn't have any obstacles and very little rock. It's a narrower trail, not super wide. It's a bit rutted in spots but is really easy overall. There are viewpoints all along the road looking down into the Paria River Canyon. For the first 2.6 miles of the trail, remember to park on the north side of the trail when stopping for the view because the south side of the track is wilderness. It's all BLM on the east side of the intersection with 1441 for the remainder of the trail, so you don't have to worry about the wilderness boundary after that. At the intersections with 1441 and 1438, you can take these trails out for additional views along the Paria Canyon. As you continue east and back north, the rest of 1094 is even easier, as it is pretty fast and straight as it loops back up north to meet up with 6115.
