Favorite hike in Saint George! Lots of breathtaking views, not too crowded, great rocks for bouldering, and just difficult enough to be interesting for experienced hikers. Bring plenty of water (most of the hike will be in the direct sun), and have your phone. The map provided on this app has been helpful a few times for zen trail (easy to lose the trail).

Really fun trail once you hit the rocks about .5 miles down.

Not a bad hike, occasionally a little boring but I feel it’s more of a moderate hike than a hard one. Some very unique rock structures and a beautiful view at the top. Not a lot of shade, 2L or water is just about right. Lots of bikers.

This trail is a must hike in St. George! Love the terrain & scenery. Bring a reliable GPS with extra batteries. It is very easy to get off the trail. Bring extra water also. This is a must do hike!!

Ran this trail counter clockwise. Pretty technical, not a fast loop. There are some portions that are more runnable than others, but overall a ton of fun. Like some other reviews noted, the trail can be quite hard to follow in places, particularly where it crosses over solid rock. There are some cairns, but not enough to solely rely on them. But between the cairns, your sense of direction, the trail map on this app, and keeping an eye out for mountain bike tracks, you can mostly stay on the trail. Views are pretty great throughout. I ran it on a fairly overcast evening, about 90 degrees out. I went through 2 liters of water. Make sure you're carrying enough. There's very little shade.

We were visiting from Tucson.
My GPS showed 6.75 miles round trip from trailhead with just over 1000’ if climbing. This is a moderate trail, not really hard. Trailhead is just outside a housing subdivision. We went counterclockwise. The first and last mile are on a featureless road and uninspiring. The middle is an unbelievably beautiful landscape of rocks, boulders, ridges, and washes. I was really surprised at the beauty so close to town. Started at daybreak and met one other couple on a Sunday. Lots of evidence of MTB use. Relied on Trails map as rocky terrain sometimes hard to follow. Cairns help but network of trails caused us to get off-route twice.
Would highly recommend.

Did the full loop counter clockwise at Sunrise. Started at SE end of trail off access road coming up from one of the newer neighborhoods off Dixie. This trail offers great views of the area in all directions but does get harder to follow on the West - SW side going up through boulder fields before the descent. Lots of cairns to help mark the way in most cases. As already noted you also get an excellent look at the trail system in the valley to the South-SW. Giving it a 5 due to easy access and super views.

More popular for mountain bikers to do the loop. Initial assent to the wall offers great views. I recommend hiking in and back (about half the total distance). Would rate hike as moderate - not hard.

Great run from the edge of town. You’re on classic desert single track within minutes. Nice climb to a killer view.

Loved the terrain!! Went in January but I imagine it would get pretty busy in high season.

Great trail. Well maintained and marked. Fun for all skill levels

Rocky and challenging ! Gorgeous views and rock caves!

Hiked from Green Valley to Bloomington with my dog. This trail is sandy/dusty with a lot more bicycles than hikers. It has small steep hills that are great for bikes but the light sand on hard rock can be very slippery. Also, with a dog, you have to be very vigilant in watching behind for cyclist, they can be coming fast. I would highly recommend this trail for mountain bikes, but for hikers, St George has a lot better to offer.

Went mid April. All the cacti were in bloom! The rock formations were amazing, the higher up you got. Loved biking. A bit over my skill level, had to hike up a good portion, but perfect for my avid mountain biking husband. Not to crowded at all!

Kinda boring, lots of places for snakes to hide I was paranoid the whole time but I guess it's worth hiking atleast once!

It was a little bit tricky staying on the trail, other than that it was an amazing hike.

A decent, dog friendly hike. Note that it is 2 miles out and 2 miles back -- so 4 miles round trip.

Lots of technical uphill and downhill. Had to walk in a few spots. Awesome view at top. Map got a little off in a spot but it helped in others when we took We took turn.

One of the best "advanced" trails in the area for mountain biking! Great ascent up the left side of the Green Valley "Gap", with great views right from the start. 3/4 of the way up the climb, the trail jogs through a fun and less technical rock section before your last small climb to the crest. The top rewards you with amazing views to the south. Below is a very fun and flowing beginner trail called Bear Claw Poppy. There are usually individuals riding it on mountain bikes as it is one of the busiest trails in Southern Utah. Zen trail shines on the descents, with fast, vertical, often rocked-out ledges, steep slick rock, and boulders of all sizes. The bottom section is fun as it travels slick-rock style riding across the large boulders at the bottom but be careful to pay attention as the trail is very easy to lose. I am a local to the area and Zen trail is one of my favorite trails in the Southern Utah area!

Good for running. I recommend counter clockwise route after a little warmup. The trail looks very boring from the parking area but gets nice and technical wrapping around boulders near the top. After an amazing view there's a long fast descent back to the road. There's also a really cool trail in the valley used for biking. It would be great for a long flowing easy run.
