Trail Overview

A beautiful trip out on Bureau of Land Management land. There are shelf roads, ponderosa pine forests and Navajo sandstone that most of this region is known for. This trail gets a little busy during deer season, and there are various spots where one person will have to back up to be able to pass. The end brings you to a short hike down to the east fork of the Virgin River, where many petroglyphs can be found on the canyon walls. The beginning of the trail passes through Zion Mountain Ranch Bison preserve, which can also be a fun photo opportunity depending on where the herd is that day.


There is a sandy hill you have to climb, some of the switchbacks require some good ground clearance.
