Owen's Loop really isn't a loop until you get to the end and the trail makes a very small loop around and back to the trail you came in on. Owens Loop Trail roughly follows the urban edge of St. Georges northwestern downtown residential area from on top of red sandstone bluffs. From the vantage point of the trail, great views of downtown St. George as well as the surrounding area to the south, all the way to the Hurricane Cliffs, can be seen. An added bonus is the red rock formations that make up the trail; nothing spectacular, but lots of slick rock and rock outcrops. The first part of the trail is well-tread, but pay attention, as the route across the slickrock can be hard to follow.

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.

Great hike to look over St George. Do early to avoid the heat.

We hiked at sunset.. we took the road down to the trail head which didn't have a parking lot ... we noticed city creek trailhead on our way down.. we took it on the way back to make our hike slightly longer. It was fun except for 29mph wind blowing. Only a few boys out hiking tonight.

Short trail along the cliffs to the north of Saint George, UT that overlooks the town and also looks off at the mid-point, toward Ivins and Santa Clara, UT. Enjoyed the hike and met several families with young children. The trail is not technically difficult (class 2) and is mostly sand and rock.

loved this hike! I brought my 13 year old boy with me too, he usually doesn't like hiking. but he loved this one! walking along the ridge as you go and seeing the pretty views of the city were the fav's.

Great views of the city. As some others have said, the trail is a little hard to follow in some spots.
