Yellow Rock Valley Viewpoint Trail is a 3.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Kanab, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from April until October.
Killer rise of about 500' over very rocky 45 degree incline to get up to the saddle. Beyond there, absolutely spectacular. We wandered around for hours. We parked at the junction of Cottonwood Road and Brigham Plains Road (430). We found two rock cairns just across Cottonwood Rd that indicated the start of the trail. Looking southwest, aim for an opening in the Cockscomb, and once you cross the river, the trail leads up this opening. Follow the cairns to the steep rocky rise. From the saddle, follow the occasionally cairned trail as best you can. Another 500' of elevation gain from the saddle to the top of the Yellow Rocks. 360 pano view.
