All Trail activities

The staple of outdoor adventure, the trail fulfills a basic human need to navigate to new places and see new things. Southern Utah has trails for hiking, biking, backpacking, horseback riding, or even just leisurely strolling along. If you are in the area, you are likely never more than a 5 minute drive away from a trail at any given time. Enjoy them all!

Cascade Falls

 (3.0)

Cascade Falls image

Hidden in the desert of Southern Utah is a significant waterfall that has several thousands of gallons of water rushing out of the side of a cliff and down the side of Cedar Mountain. This water source is one of the headwaters of the Virgin River, and comes directly from Navajo lake above it. A relatively easy quick half-mile hike will get you there to see it, and the whole experience can be had in under an hour.

Kanarra Falls (Kanarra Creek)

 (3.7)

Kanarra Falls (Kanarra Creek) image

Kanarra Falls (sometimes mistakenly called Kanarraville falls) is a great hike with most of the features of some of a more traditional slot canyons, and with no requirements for permits or rappelling gear. This trail includes a creek running over river rocks between sheer vertical canyon walls, a log modified to be a ladder up a waterfall, and plenty of time spent walking in the water.

Angels Landing

 (4.5)

Angels Landing image

This is one of the most famous, well-known, and thrilling hikes in the entire national park system. The trail climbs 2300 ft in elevation over its 3 mile length, starting at a leisurely, level slope next to the virgin river and culminating on a rock ridge requiring a firm grip on the assistive chains. It's not a walk in the park - but the view is worth every bit of effort!

Emerald Pools Trail

Emerald Pools Trail image

This trail has a well-deserved reputation of being a family friendly, leisurely hike that introduces you to some of the beauty of Zion that requires just a bit of work to get to. It is one of the most popular trails in zion (and therefore one of the busiest!), but the green vegetation and ample water makes it a must-see.

Jennys Canyon

 (3.5)

Jennys Canyon image

Jenny's Canyon is perhaps the most accessible slot canyon in all of Southern Utah. Just a few minutes drive from the south entrance to Snow Canyon State Park, and just a 5 minute jaunt from the road, this trail barely counts as a hike at all. Great for kids, inexperienced hikers, or anybody who wants to experience a slot canyon without needing to mess with any of the ropes, water, or hassle that accompanies most in the area. If you are in the area of the park, this is a must-do.

Fort Pearce Trail (Warner Valley)

 (1.0)

Fort Pearce Trail (Warner Valley) image

More a launching point into the Warner Valley wilderness than anything else, the Fort Pearce trail is largely undocumented and appears to simply be the conversion of a road system into a non-motorized trail. The trailhead is right off of Warner Valley road, but sorting the trail out from the remnants of the ATV trail system that preceded it is difficult.

Temple Quarry Trail

 (2.4)

Temple Quarry Trail image

Temple Quarry Trail is a wonderful piece of history and scenery all rolled up in a close-to-home package. The site at the end of the trail is the location of stone that was brought to help construct the foundation of the St George LDS Temple, and stabilize it on what was a marshy swamp. Along the way are great views of much of St George as the trail wraps around the hill.
