Trail Overview

This is a great way to start your Poverty Gulch adventure. This track stays above Poverty Gulch and rides a ridgeline looking down into Poverty Gulch. This is a relatively easy track; however, it is narrow in spots with trees and bushes extending into the track so that wider vehicles can get some scratches. Other than the dirt areas, which can quickly turn into the deep mud, this is very family-friendly with short runs and then some beautiful views that seem to extend forever.

Access Description

The trailhead is off of Route 9 which goes through Zion National Park and terminates at Highway 89 at Mount Carmel Junction north of Kanab, UT. The road to the trailhead is very near the eastern entrance to Zion and watch out for the buffalo being grown nearby.
