Historic fort, endless plains, steep cliffs, livestock If you're on the road and need an interesting place to keep the suppleness of your legs intact while on the road between Zion and the Grand Canyon, this former Mormon tithing ranch makes a good stop. The trail begins outside the Visitor Center and takes you past fields, livestock pens, and a historic fort that never fired a shot before marching you up a ridge for a panoramic vista of the Arizona Strip. Watch for the telegraph wires that were run by plural wives living at the fort and the Honeymoon Trail, a now faint road that newlyweds took to get their marriages sealed in the St. George, Utah temple.

Very short hike but nice views. Worth the stop. This is a National Park so there are fees if you don’t have a pass.

A hike to do if you combine it with something else you are doing in the area.

Awesome family friendly place and just interesting to go through by yourself. I stopped on a whim and couldn't open All Trail to access the route. There is no phone or internet service in the area. So make sure you've downloaded the map previously and have the trail app open before you enter the void.
