The trek from black gulch parking to yellow knolls parking was amazing! Great views, sandy trail, lots of signs. Then my dog and I crossed the street to Winchester which takes you to black gulch. I should have walked up the road to our car instead! If it was just me it still would have been hard but doable. But I would suggest not going with a dog. We have had a lot of rain this year and the trail was completely washed out. There were cairns for about a mile or so off and on then they were gone. We hiked up the wash the best we could but the boulders were huge and it was a warm day so my pup was over it. I ended up climbing up the 500 plus feet up the mountain to the top (which I don’t suggest) with my dog in my arms. I laugh about it now but it was sketchy!!! We’ve gone on a lot of hikes together and he loves climbing rocks but this was way too much. Do yourself a favor and just hike from one parking lot to the other. Skip the gulch unless you are prepared for huge boulders and LOTS of climbing, scrambling and getting lost!

Hiked it with my 4yr old daughter until we found “Turtle Rock” pretty easy trail with some pretty scenery!

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.

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!

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.

Very close to town and convenient. the flat trails are great for a simple walk, or even www.easy bike ride. The Eastern part of the trail is wide open with a few small dips. The Western part of the trail has several opportunities to climb on rocks and go bouldering. This trail should be classified as Easy.

Really neat. Easy hike. Beautiful views. Ancient History. According to the evidence, the Ancient Natives were riding dinosaurs. Check it out!

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.

I clocked it at 1.9 miles beautiful scenery plan on one and a half to two hours it is a steep climb and not for dogs or children great place for a picnic at the top beautiful views

Fun hike and very pretty. The description says, "Lightly trafficked," but we went on a Sunday at the end of December and there were a lot of people.

The app claims I finished this trail, but it’s not exactly true. I did most of it. I’m also doubtful Scout Cave is on the trail because I saw the trail marker in a different area. I did see the turtle and arch. That was cool. It’s an exposed trail, so take a hat, sunscreen and plenty of water.

Good tough trail to run. From about mile 3 to 5 there is a decent amount of sand that you run/walk in then after that it is a great run.
