Just West of Rockville on Highway 9. Next parking area East of the Coal Pits Wash Trail Head perhaps 1/2 mile. Not marked. Go through the gate (close it behind you) onto the BLM land. Walk about 100 yards. If you see a large power sub-station you are in the right place.

Nice hike up the wash. The first 2 miles is regular "sand in the wash" type of hiking, but the last 1/2 mile or so gets you thru some larger boulders and the turnaround at a large dry waterfall. Would have liked to have gotten a look at this from above, but didn't want to rock scramble to do it. We did locate several pieces of petrified wood in the walls. A nice hike. Saw no other hikers today.

A great sandy hike up a wash ending for some at a dry fall where an ancient petrified log jam awaits. If you wander up a little further with a scramble up the left of the wash from the dry fall you can meet up with Chinle trail and venture to Coal Pits Wash or go down Scoggins. On top is the petrified forest. When you do hike this make sure you look for all the petrified wood trapped in the walls of the wash and then some.

This is a nice winter hike that follow the bottom of Huber Wash which runs East of and more or less parallel to better known Coal Pits Wash. There is not much altitude gain but the trail is not as easy as some because the bottom of the wash offers uneven footing. It offers great views of Mount Kinesava. We did the hike in early February. There were a few places in the wash that were still muddy from a rain about 10 days earlier but mostly they could be avoided. The trail ends at a low dry waterfall and hanging garden that was mostly brown in February but which probably greens up later. West of the trail is a petrified forest mesa and quite a few chunks of petrified wood can be found along the trail particularly near the end. (It is illegal to remove them from the Park.) This hike sees very little traffic which is a big plus compared to many of the over-crowded trails in Zion NP. At the end of the trail, by backtracking about 100 feet and scrambling up a steep incline on the East Wall, you can supposedly connect to the Chinle Trail. I have not tried that route so don't guarantee it.
