Kanarra Creek Trail

This is a fantastic trail that we think is right up there with the world class hikes in Zion National Park. It’s accessed from Kanarraville, UT about 25 minutes away from St. George. This trail crosses the creek a few times before entering some incredible slot canyons and eventually a rope ladder that you can climb up to view the falls.

The Subway

This stunning hike is on the more difficult side but you would be hard pressed to find a more amazing hike anywhere in the world. Permits are required to hike this trail but it is so worth it! There are two ways to hike it, but either way will take you to the Subway which is a beautiful natural tunnel that the river runs through. Prepare to walk through the stream for much of the hike while taking in breathtaking sights.
