Hiking

Greater Zion has something for everyone in the realm of hiking

So whether you are looking for a grueling 12-mile hike into the solitude of nature or a fun two-mile hike for the whole family, Greater Zion won’t disappoint. Below is a link to hikes the area has to offer.

Weaving alongside the Santa Clara River, the Southgate Golf Course is the perfect walkable course to get your steps in. Do not be fooled though, eight of the first nine holes have water features, so you’ve got to be accurate. The fairways are wide, so there’s usually a safe place to play. The back nine, however, is a different story, with narrow fairways and hills to make you justify your front nine score.

Now that the temperature has cooled off it is the perfect time to rent a side by side UTV and go play in the dunes. Contact a local outfitter, grab a helmet and let it rip!

The Bearclaw Poppy Trail System is within one of the most fragile and ecologically sensitive areas in Greater Zion. The Dwarf Bearclaw Poppy is a federally listed endangered species, and Washington County/Greater Zion is the only place on earth where it grows. Mountain bikers must ride on designated trails only. A single bike track across the cryptobiotic crust can damage poppy habitat for decades.

A beautiful piece of Greater Zion’s history, the Dixie Red Hills Golf Course was the first golf course developed by the City of St.George in the mid 1960s, taking it from a desert gas station stop to a true place of beauty and tourism.

If you want to play in the red rocks, this course is about as close as you can get. Find your space golfing in Greater Zion calling shots off the boulders, around the cliffs and through the trees.

Green Valley Gap offers tremendously easy access making it perfect for a quick climb. Unlike many climbing areas, the road leading to the Gap lands your vehicle at the top of the canyon with parking just 100 feet from the top anchors, perfect for top roping! There are many easy ways to scramble down the cliff to the base of the crag to lead climb as well.

2021 photographer bucket list alert!

Located in Gunlock State Park, Gunlock Falls are an incredible sight to behold, if you can catch them flowing… most likely in the Spring. Be sure to check the park’s website or social media before you head out. And if they are flowing, get out there fast! The falls are located on the south end of Gunlock Reservoir. The surprisingly warm waters found in reservoir provide a boating, swimming and fishing paradise all year round.

“Forever is Now” featuring Zion National Park, and sponsored by Greater Zion, will make its world premiere at the online Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival Nov. 20-29.

This film by @lcl.studio follows 10 people who are Zion National Park’s keepers and caretakers. At a time of increasing tension between recreation and environmental impact, the film follows a path to the future through character stories that are personal, complex, and compelling.

Shot in all four seasons across 14 successive months, the film captures Zion like it has never been seen before — instilling a sense of awe and ownership for public lands today, tomorrow, and forever.

A trip to the St. George and Springdale areas can easily be justified with a single hike in Zion National Park or Snow Canyon State Park. They are that good! It’s truly a unique experience you won’t find elsewhere.

But go greater! Go explore ALL Greater Zion has to offer. Take the path less traveled too.

The beautiful red and orange rocks burst and break into mountains, canyons, buttes, and gorges that make for some great hiking. It’s amazing to see what nature is capable of while hiking Zion National Park and beyond.
