Great, short hike. Perfect after dinner hike during the heat of the summer during daylight savings time

Park at the Pioneer Hills trailhead. We crossed the highway & walked trail backwards from what’s marked here. Walked back on paved bike trail. Could’ve started a half hour sooner to beat more heat but was a great hike.

My husband and I completed this hike on July 17. We went midday.... was about 100*, by we figured we could do a super-short hike like this.

Overall pretty enjoyable hike and easy to follow. However we did get lost for a few minutes before using the app to guide us back to the trail (hint: at the top of the stairs, make a sharp left!).

The endpoint had some mildly interesting historical information.

If you're looking to do a hike in the St. George summer heat, I'd recommend this one for its quickness and easy accessibility. But be warned that it is hot, and there is zero shade. Although it was just .8 miles, we still took our water with us, and we're glad we did!

The trail is poorly marked, which makes following it accurately a challenge, especially at night. Also, a bit close to civilization for me. I enjoy a trail where sirens and cars driving by cannot be heard. On the plus side, it's quick to get to, and isn't too long. The view isn't half bad either.

It’s nice hike.. I was thinking of riding my
Mountain bike there but couldn’t find a way to get there with my mountain bike. The chuckwalla trail doesn’t allow mountain bikes and I think halfway wash as well.. so idk

Great hike. Not difficult. Good for all ages.
We’ve done this trail 3 times now.

Fun trails, great views of St. George. Cool slot canyons to explore.

Family friendly walk. Went early in the morning as temps. were to reach 102 this afternoon. Very peaceful walk. Saw the arch and the "turtle" rock formation. Nice views from the top. We started on the Chuckwalla Trail, continued on to the Turtle Wall Trail, and returned via the Paradise Rim Trail.

The Green Valley Gap was a great place to rock climb. There were multiple spots to climb. You can either hike in from the bottom of the gap, or drive right up and over the top of the climb you would like to top rope and repelle down.

Great hike to do with kids. We did the Chuckwalla connecting to Turtle Wall. The kids loved the climbing/bouldering opportunities! Very wide defined trail. Definetely will do again for the "natural playground"!

Great trail for kids. Bits of sparkling gypsum are fun to point out, plus lots of cryptobiotic soil (thinking this is why the trail is called "Biotic"). Views were better before the massive powerlines came in, but still some nice vistas, and very well marked.

This was a pretty leisurely hike. There was a lot of people and almost every group had a dog. You start on the chuckwalla trail and then you make it out to turtle wall. There is an arch and a rock formation that looks like a turtle!

We started the trail from a pullout just off the the road (Red hills parkway). We parked in a dirt lot and started the trail. This was an easy beginner trail for my husband and I, but a challenging and fun trail for our kids (4,6,9). Our 4 year old got a bit nervous about the ups and downs and rocky terrain. Our other kids loved it! There was a fun section of Cairns along to path to stop and admire and add to. We didn’t finish the loop, but finished at Dixie rock.

Loved the terrain!! Went in January but I imagine it would get pretty busy in high season.

a wonderful short and easy hike wit some cool rock formations to see.

We made mistake on the trail & felt that we ventured in moderate section a bit. It was hard going up & down all together about 5 miles & 400 feet elevation change. My body felt powerful with all oxygen
