Great hike to do with kids. We did the Chuckwalla connecting to Turtle Wall. The kids loved the climbing/bouldering opportunities! Very wide defined trail. Definetely will do again for the "natural playground"!

Went for my morning run before sunrise. Did the first part with the headlamp. Nice overlook on the sleeping city.Easy trail. I did park at pioneer hills headtrail, crossed the road and joined this trail at the middle, did the loop and came back to the trail start, then came back to the parking along the red hills pkwy and run on the other side on pioneer hill trail, which is a dirt road with very nice views too. Could not run the whole trail and got lost once or twice. But google map helped me find my way back

We started the trail from a pullout just off the the road (Red hills parkway). We parked in a dirt lot and started the trail. This was an easy beginner trail for my husband and I, but a challenging and fun trail for our kids (4,6,9). Our 4 year old got a bit nervous about the ups and downs and rocky terrain. Our other kids loved it! There was a fun section of Cairns along to path to stop and admire and add to. We didn’t finish the loop, but finished at Dixie rock.

Easy trails that were fun to hike. Started with Chuckwalla TRAIL as a connector. Then hiked Halfway Wash Trail all of the way. Then connected to Paradise Rim Trail, which had great views. From there took Turtle Wall Trail back to Chuckwalla to finish up. Nothing terrifically difficult but a good hike.

Actually we hiked up to Elephant Arch starting at the Mill Creek TH and then following Bone Wash. The trail started out a double track that goes to a Washington City well. After that it follows a sandy wash bottom. Well marked trail to an interesting Arch that really does look like an elephant. Easy hike but sandy most of the way.

This was a great trail for my dog. Only passed one group of hikers and the temperature was perfect at 8am. The beauty exceeded my expectations.

Pretty and peaceful. Great views of the surrounding areas and views of Zion National Park. Saw a few trail runners and a couple other hikers. For the most part we were the only ones on the trail.

Ran this in the dark under a full moon. Fairly easy to navigate, with several signs along the way. Pretty views of the city, terrain not too bad. Still managed to get lost once.

This trail is mostly sandstone rock but smooth and safe. Horses are permitted and the views are a treasure.

Great hiking trail but not a great bike ride. There are portions of it that you will need to carry the bike at the beginning. It you don't want to hit those sections you can access the trail a little further north where it hits the City Creek trail but bring lots of extra tubes, there are lots of goat head stickers on that section.

Loved it. Just enough to be interesting but not give my grandma knees pain. Plus does it get any better than red rock for a background?

Very exposed and at times it was hard to find the trail since you are walking on top of boulders and such. It was so awesome though. I would totally do this one again.

This is one my favorite trails to do when I want to do an impromptu hike. I usually start at the trailhead off Cascade Canyon Dr. There are great views from this trail of St. George, Santa Clara and Ivins. Right where the trail turns away from the rim there's a bench to sit on and take in the fantastic view of Red Mountain. Be aware that while in the reserve you could come across a desert tortoise in which you should admire from afar so you don't scare them into losing their limited water supply. If this happens they could die before the next rainfall! One of the highlights on this hike is the Turtle Wall for which the trail is named. The huge red rocks from the side look like a turtle head and body. You can walk out into it, sit awhile and take in the views. The trail is typically trafficked by hikers, trail runners, and bikers.
