Easily my favorite trail in the park. I hiked this with my pup two weeks ago and loved it! It’s pretty easy and not very far distance wise. There are so many places to stop and take pictures of the views. The only downside is that we lost the trail and wandered a bit(not marked super well and most the ground was snow covered). I would hike this again in warmer weather!

There isn’t much elevation change-but it sure is a pretty walk with views all around. The name of the trail is fitting and it’s well marked. You can also bring dogs and the terrain isn’t rough at all.. my pup sure enjoyed getting out!

This is a really fun and easy trail that kids will LOVE. If you start at the northern picnic area you get to descend the steel staircase into the canyon and then meander through the alien landscape. Chances are in this remote location you will have the area mostly to yourself. Once you get to the southern end of the trail, you can explore the small slot canyons and feel like you are on a Star Wars planet! Highly recommended.

We stopped through on our way to Boulder from Kanab. It’s definitely a great stop, and we had the trail all to ourselves. More than worth the $8 entry fee.

This is such a cool slot canyon hike! Went at the very end of November and a lot of the creek was completely iced over. But if you’re slow and careful, you can still see a good bit of the slot canyons! The road to get there is pretty rough, but definitely do-able in AWD.

Great slot canyon off the beaten path. No crowd and you may see no one. We went all the way to the end climbing all the ropes and obstacles. Very fun and challenging for me. Getting back down the rope sections was the toughest. I highly recommend doing this for a great adventure and to experience a beautiful and uncrowded canyon.

It was an absolutely breathtaking hike. Just as you think it can’t get any better, you turn the corner and see another valley with more red formations.

Loved this loop. Super varied, mostly flat and with great sights. Perfect for jogging around.

Highly recommended.

Really enjoyable trail. Lots to see and pretty varied landscape and rock formations. Don’t miss Cool Cave. Didn’t see any other hikers but did bump into some cyclists.

My boyfriend and I did this hike and loved it!! A challenging and strenuous hike that is well worth the effort! There are amazing views of the valley and mountains throughout the entire trail. If you are in good shape we highly recommend this hike! We are grateful to Vito who maintains the trail and provides seats and signs that add to the experience.

Who said this was hard? Easy- dirt road for atvs unless you go off road/trail into a side canyon then it becomes interesting.

Nice short hike close to Kanab. There are a lot of ATV trails going off in all directions, and I was glad I had the map pulled up on the AllTrails app. GoogleMaps brought me to a small parking area right where Rt 106Q intersects with 106 near where 106 intersects with Hwy 89. There was a barbwire fence with a gate you could open and then I just walked straight up 106Q. It is sandy, and it is uphill, but really not that hard. I didn't climb around much once 106Q ended. About halfway up 106Q there is a .2 mile spur (I think it is 106R) that runs up to the base of the butte. You could for sure climb up quite a ways on the rocks there, not that I am recommending it.

On the way up, you are looking at the colorful butte, and on the way down you are looking at a panoramic landscape that goes on forever. It may not be the most spectacular scenery in the area, but it's still excellent.

I just walked a mile or so up the ATV road and came back. It's an ATV trail, without any ATVs this afternoon. It's not for hiking. Along the portion I covered, there were a few nice views. It is sandy.

If you have a chance, do this hike. The scenery is spectacular. I did it on a cold November morning, and saw absolutely no one else.

I did the loop clockwise, parking at the Red Canyon Visitor Center (closed right now), crossing Hwy 12, and walking down to the Red Canyon Campground on the bike path. I will say that without the AllTrails app, I might have had some trouble finding the trailhead inside the campground. This route got the boring parts of the hike out of the way first.

Once you hit the main part of the trail, it's great. A fair amount of up and down in terms of elevation gain. There are parts of the trail that have been affected by washouts/slides, but maybe someone has cleaned things up, because it was very easy to navigate. I was never in doubt for more than 10 seconds as to where to go to stay on the trail. The Buckhorn trail is a quarter mile spur up to an awesome high point. You might feel a little exposed on that part of the trail, but it's not dangerous. I took the Castle Bridge trail option on the way down. In fact, I didn't even see where the other option was, but the way I went was excellent. The trail ends on Hwy 12 again, maybe 50 yards before the Visitor Center.

Absolutely spectacular views. This is one of the prettiest hikes I’ve been on in Southern Utah. I would not rate this as excessively difficult, maybe just “hard”. It is very steep and slippery in places and the rise is pretty much constant. Caution should be exercised with children and you definitely need hiking poles to prevent slipping in several places. It was fun to run down, and i didn’t see another human the whole time. This took me 2 full hours, without much stopping.

Great views. Scenary is similar to what you would see at Bryce but on a much smaller scale. Trail was in fair condition as we encountered many rock slide areas. Fortunately it hadn't rained in a while so trail was dry.

Trail is lightly used. During our ~ 3 hour hike we didn't see another person until we got back to the parking lot. Trail is fine for adults or teenagers, but it wouldn't be good for young children as trail is narrow with many rocky slide off areas.

If you're looking for a leisurely hike with great scenary and few people, this hike is for you.

Short hike with a beautifully groomed trail. Waterfall was dead when we passed through but totally worth the hike!

We did not actualy attempted the trail because we called the owners (the Tait family) and they told us there was alot of rain in the past few weeks and the canyon must be filled with water so the hike would not be enjoyable. Instead of trespassing on their propriety, give them a call: 1-435-648-2522. Be polite and honest about your intention and they will gladly answer your questions and let you access their land.

I really liked this trail. Cathedral Gorge is a really unique place and this loop trail is the best way to see it. Took me a little bit less than 2 hours to hike it and I stopped frequently to take photos. It’s a very easy hike and the views are worth it. Wear sunblock if it’s warm out because there is no shade whatsoever on this trail. Also, most of the hike is in the washes that run through the gorge so wear shoes you won’t mind getting really muddy. The scenery is not on a huge scale, but it’s kind of refreshing to be able to do something on a smaller scale.

This was a mostly level hike up a stream bed. There was only a small stream in October, but without waterproof hiking shoes, feet would still have been wet! Great, rewarding and relaxing hike; lots of slot canyons, two waterfalls, and wonderful fall foliage.

Skip Bryce NP (too crowded) and do this hike. Amazing views. Some challenging areas which make it more fun

Awesome trail! Breathtaking views throughout and hoodoos abounding! Should be pretty steady on narrow exposed hillside trails

The last mile is the toughest!

I parked my car at the gravel parking lot near US-89. I walked about a mile down the sandy road and came across a Hyundai with all wheel drive that was stuck in the sand. I helped push them along with another guy and they were able to drive back up the road for maybe 0.2 miles. They got stuck in the sand again. The other guy helping was a local. He went home and got his pickup truck. He tried using a tow strap to pull the Hyundai. No luck. I walked back up to the parking lot. After eating some snacks and drinking some water I walked back down to where the stuck Hyundai was. The Hyundai and pickup truck were gone. I guess they made it out okay.

First thing, Turn Left into creek from trail. We hiked about 1.5 miles each way, went through maybe 6 slot sections, easy hike with good reward. We were told no more slots so were ok going back at that point. 6 miles on dirt road rough but passable. Water level was prefect, small stream.

Exactly what it said in the reviews! The falls were dry but still super fun hike, you can climb in the cave where the falls come out when they're dry and look down there, that was pretty cool!

A short but remarkable slot canyon. Beware, the 4 mile drive in is some of the deepest sand I have ever encountered. My FJ got us in and out without airing down but we passed 2 rental jeeps buried to the axles.

Amazing hike, dogs loved it. Great views. Not much water when we went.

Great hike. The cool
Cave was my favorite part. I did the whole
Six miles and found it to be more easy than moderate. Enjoy!!
