Fun, easy walk with the parents and grandparents. The arch is cool to see. Lots of people out and about this Thanksgiving weekend. It was unfortunate to see a few people disregarding the rules (dogs, walking off the path, breaking branches or throwing rocks). Please respect the landscape.

Took us about an hour there and back.

Love the red rock. Wanted desperately to go off trail and explore. Worth the heat!

Trail was open as of 9/13/16. Easy hike, neat geology. Standing amidst the towering rocks in the back of the quiet canyon was wonderful and cool. Red rocks, cottonwoods in the creek bed, canyon wrens laughing at me. Worth a walk for sure.

this trail is only open about half of the year. when it is open, be sure to check it out. It is a nice break from the heat and has a variety of terrain.

Occasionally there may be water back in the canyon which enhances the beauty.

Some nice views. Quick out and back.

A fun, easy, short trail to the largest (200') arch in the St George area. Great for kids!

This was a beautiful hike. There were two adults and four kids (2, five year olds and 2, 1 year olds in packs). We hiked it on January 31, 2015. It was easy for everyone. We hiked about .25 miles past the arch to the end of the canyon and had fun playing in the sand and climbing on the rocks. Fun hike. I would recommend it.

Lovely hike into the canyon. You'll cross lava beds which are uniquely interesting. Approaching the red cliffs, the view changes often and is always beautiful. If you're quiet you can hear croaking toads in the small amounts of water below the trail. Quite enjoyable.

This trail was really beautiful and easy enough our kids, under 8 were able to do it. It dead ends in a canyon and it's really cool. Well worth the drive out to it.
