Hurricane Cliffs trail system is located in southern Utah’s red rock country.
Sandwiched between Gooseberry Mesa on the east, the Virgin River on the north, and the Hurricane Cliffs on the west, the ten trails comprising the system traverse 31 miles of Mojave Desert. Views of the surrounding geographic features are stunning. At a 4,000 foot elevation, scenes include the multicolored face of Hurricane Mesa, the spires of Zion National Park, and the chasms of the Virgin River and its tributaries.
All trails are managed by the Bureau of Land Management with the exception of the Canal Trail, which is managed by the Hurricane City Historical Preservation Association. The Canal Trail offers hikers a look back into the past as its route is the historic water canal completed in 1904. Only non-motorized users are permitted on the trail system with some restrictions for mountain bikers and equestrians on individual trails.
