Trail Overview

Toquerville Communication Towers Overlook is a 1.7-mile point-to-point trail rated 3 of 10 located in Washington County, Utah. The Toquerville Communications Tower Overlook trail is a destination trail on the way up to visiting Toquerville Falls. The trail rises about 1,000 feet in the first 1.5 miles and it is best traveled in late spring, summer, and early fall. During the monsoon seasons, care should be taken as the mud on this trail can get to be about a foot deep, and the steep climb or descent can become a safety issue. During the climb, the trail offers scenic views of basalt cliffs, lava flows, and the Zion National Park mountain range. Upon reaching the communications tower, enjoy the panoramic view of the Hurricane Valley, Pine Valley Mountain Range, and views of the communities of Leads, Toquerville, La Verkin, and Hurricane. Travelers should not attempt to reach the upper communications tower as there is little to no space and many off-road recoveries have been documented attempting to reach this spot. Cell phone service is intermittent and the nearest services are in La Verkin.

Difficulty

The trail consists of loose rocks, dirt, and sand with some slickrock surfaces. Mud holes are possible, but there are no steps higher than 12 inches. 4WD may be required, and aggressive are tires a plus.
