This quiet area is just down the road from Zion Ponderosa. The trail is an old road that is pretty sandy at times. We had rented a mini van so we didn't make it far on the road but an off-roading type truck or car could go as far as the yellow house. As you follow along the trail you begin to wonder if your getting anywhere and then you enter Zion National Park and then Jolley Gulch is straight ahead. Careful as it is a long way down. I crawled on my stomach to the edge and took pictures looking down as it was dangerous. There was equipment there for belaying down into the slot canyon so someone had gone down that day it appeared. It was a fantastic little hike that made for a great cap to the day of hiking we had just finished.
