A great hike with a lot to see. Follow the trail map closely to find the Arch.

I enjoyed this trail, took it up and connected to the scout cave trail. Really cool views for being a trail so close to town.

We loved this trail I took my 3 & 2 year olds there was snow on the mountain so they were going up the mountain to find Elsa. However my only recommendation don’t go after snow (which is rare) or rain, it was a lil scary at times with the slippery parts with toddlers, all around though it was fun

Easy trail as part of the paradise rim loop. Good senic views.

Great hike in the city St. George. Trail head is just a few blocks from downtown. Amazing views of the city and surrounding area. Can be completed in a couple hours, not too strenuous.

Only saw 2 other hikers on this easy 4 mile hike in January, with beautiful 60 degree weather! Pros: fun combination of rock and gravel and dirt path, excellent views, option to climb the big rocks overlooking St George. Cons: east end of trail is scattered with broken glass, tiny pieces, and although you mostly don’t see the traffic on Red Hills Parkway you can hear it the whole way. Sure beats neighborhood walking though!

This was awesome! It’s like a make-your-own adventure sort of hike. I did it in January. All the other trails in Zion’s were covered in snow and ice, but out here in Hurricane it was perfectly dry. The primitive campground seems like it would be way fun to try. I ended up going down to the arch the “wrong” way (very easy to lose the trail with all the rocks and paths you can take) and I got to the river at the bottom without seeing any sort of arch. I came up on the west side coming back, and found the main trail and the 20’ arch right on the trail, after some wrong turns. I loved exploring the canyons on the east side of the wash. I’d love to come back and explore even more! ALSO—there’s a couple miles of dirt road you need to drive in order to get to the trailhead. I had a low-clearance sporty kind of car and made it fine, though a couple of spots (small ditches) had me sweating haha.

Great short little hike with amazing scenery. As others have stated the trail is a little hard to follow as it very sandy and rocky so not as easy to follow others footprints. Many of the trail markers have blown down or been washed to the side with the recent rains we have had. Great area to explore. The trail head is easily accessible down a dirt road. The road had one area that was washed out but was easily tackled by my stock pickup. The trail head is not to far past this area so if needed you could park and hike the half mile to the trail head. Happy Adventuring.

Of the trails in the St George city limits, this has become my favorite family friendly trail. From start to finish it has either stunning views from the tops of tall red cliffs or interesting rock formations along the trail. It took us less than 2 hours and we were taking our time. The only downside is that there are a few parts that aren’t marked to well so make sure you pay attention to where you are going.

Started at the Cotton creek trailhead. Very nice.

Excellent trail for kids, especially little ones because there are lots of rocks to climb on. I would suggest a carrier for when you are coming back up the hill from the arch. Especially lovely at sunset.

Went with a couple of friends we all brought our dogs. It went great was easy and fun

My friend and I hit this trail yesterday. We walked 2.5 miles out all the way to the grapevine trail and then headed back not seeing anything. The tracks are right at the beginning, at the bottom of the first hill not far from the trailhead. We completely missed them going in. We laughed so hard. Despite the little sign talking about the tracks, we didn’t realize that was where they were located. Lots of sand covered the tracks. In fact the track in the first picture (the raised one with the interesting patterns in the rock) was completely covered. We had a blast either way. The entire trail is beautiful. Also the dirt road from the neighborhood to the trailhead was easy to drive in my 2WD truck.

Beautiful hike! I was hoping to see more dinosaur tracks along the hike other than those that are at the bottom of the first hill. I never did see the tracks shown in the first picture for this trail. Not sure where that track is located. The scenery is gorgeous and worth hiking the full trail out and back.

Follow-up to my post. It turns out the raised dinosaur track currently shown as the first picture for this hike is not actually a dinosaur track that is on this hike. It can be found a couple of miles from this hike at the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm. https://www.utahdinosaurs.com/

Nice area for some easy hiking amid beautiful scenery. It feels remote in places even though the highway is just over the hill and in spite of being able to hear traffic. You can connect this trail with Beck Hill, Gila, Paradise Rim and Turtle Wall trails to provide a variety of options for loop hikes and varying distance. We spent 3 hours in here wandering around and taking photographs. Nothing strenuous about these trails; suitable for anyone who can walk on sandy or rocky paths.

Fun trail for the spring- be sure to go a little past the arch and play in the river.

Beautiful red rock, but you’re also in view and hearing of a major road almost the whole hike.
