Trail Overview

Trail Canyon is a 2.7-mile point-to-point single track that provides scenic views of the Kanab Cliffs and Sugar Knoll. The trail is rated 3 of 10 due to the potential for deep sand in spots. The trail in conjunction with Twin Hollow-BLM98 and Deer Hollow trails creates a 12-mile loop from Highway 9 west of Mount Carmel Junction to Highway 89 just south of Orderville. This trail is best run in the late afternoon when the sun is past zenith so that the Kanab Cliffs and Sugar Knoll are not in shadow. The midpoint of the trail crosses a sandy wash. Cell phone coverage is limited in this area and will probably be lost after a couple of miles on the trail. The nearest services are located in Mount Carmel Junction.

Difficulty

Trail consisting of loose rocks, dirt, and sand with some slickrock surfaces, mud holes possible, no steps higher than 12". 4WD may be required, aggressive tires a plus.
