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.

Ran this in the dark under a full moon. Fairly easy to navigate, with several signs along the way. Pretty views of the city, terrain not too bad. Still managed to get lost once.

This trail is mostly sandstone rock but smooth and safe. Horses are permitted and the views are a treasure.

Great hiking trail but not a great bike ride. There are portions of it that you will need to carry the bike at the beginning. It you don't want to hit those sections you can access the trail a little further north where it hits the City Creek trail but bring lots of extra tubes, there are lots of goat head stickers on that section.

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.
