Trail Overview

FR30002-Water Canyon is a 7.5-mile unmaintained, hard-packed dirt and rock trail rated 2 of 10 located in the Dixie National Forest, Pine Valley Ranger District. The trail leads through relatively flat scrub brush and pinyon pines. This trail provides access to Rock Canyon and Pine Canyon Trail #31046, non-motorized trails that connect to the west end of Upper Enterprise Reservoir. The trail does not have any obstacles or trail conditions that will require 4x4. In dry conditions, the entire route can be completed with 2WD high clearance. Water Canyon trail runs between three mountain peaks: Green Mountain at 6,503 feet, West Pass at 6,614 feet, and Water Canyon Peak at 7,349 feet. This part of Washington County is rugged and remote. Visitors should plan carefully and be prepared for backcountry travel conditions. This trail is not recommended during winter as snow accumulates above 5,000 feet. Don't expect cell phone reception in this area; the nearest services are in Enterprise or Veyo.
