It's along a dirt road so be ready for a dirt bath every time someone drives by! It has beautiful view points all along the trail.

The north end of this trail starts in Rockville off of Hwy 9. Cross the Virgin River and after you turn off the Grafton road, the trail get rough and steep. Once you get on top of the ridge, the road improves dramatically. Nice view of Zion at the top of the ridge..
