Did this scenic drive by accident many years ago traveling home from Salt Lake to Kansas City. Sometimes just striking out and seeing where you land is the best trips. Many recreational opportunities and scenic area.

Beautiful trail. Needed spikes. Leave your parks card out on the dashboard or you'll get a ticket. There is a restroom at the trailhead open year-round. There was one stream crossing at this time of year but you can step across the snow banks. Reasonably paced incline. Great views.

Lower Calf Creek Falls

My favorite hike ever! The views the entire way and the history behind it, just thinking about all of the people that lived here is truly amazing. The riverbed is always to your right with fresh green vegetation covering it most of the time and what appear to be little white spider webs completely covering the vegetation, it was beautiful. The rocks all around are amazing and breath taking, there are a lot of side paths to venture off into, gorgeous views. It does get pretty crowded so go early, in the warmer months the jump into the water is so worth it in the end. There is just something about this place that brought me extreme happiness and I felt that same energy coming back from everyone else hiking to and from there as well, encouraging you on. Please please please pick up your trash, this is such an amazing place that I want to stay preserved for decades to come. This was also my favorite campsite ever, the night sky was so beautifully clear, definitely a lot of nature sounds around. I loved every moment of it. Enjoy!!!!

Mossy Cave Trail

The hike itself was beautiful, it was just very crowded. Very short and easy hike, we veered off path a bit to avoid everyone there. Just mind the rocks when you go please! Erosion is at work. The waterfall was beautiful, the water was cold yet there was plenty of people. The cave was not impressive at all and it was fenced off.

Great hike. I highly recommend you keep going to Marshall, Hoover, and Shepherd lakes. Was a little crowded when I went in late August, but once you get past Fehr lake and weed out the weak ones, it opens right up. Dogs loved it.

I had a meeting get canceled so I went out for a walk on the Temple Quarry Trail. Easy to walk, not really a hiking trail. Saw a fox at the end, we just stood and stared at each other for quite a while. Very relaxing.

Nice hike. Beautiful view of St. George City. The trailhead can be a little hard to find but it's well worth the effort. This is an easy hike with only one or two spots that are moderate.

This is one of my favorite Sunday afternoon hikes. There is only one point that's moderately difficult, the rest is easy.

Bald Mountain Trail

Spectacular views at the top. This was the most memorable hike of my life because it was my first real hike up a mountain, and we got stuck overnight! We hiked up to watch the sunset but by the time the sun went down, darkness came quick. We lost the trail and after falling hard on my shin I told my boyfriend that we could not keep going down so we literally spent the night on the jagged hard side of this mountain... The night sky was the most beautiful I have ever seen in my life, I felt like I could touch the stars. When we got up in the morning we found the trail in about two minutes and ran the whole way down to the car! It was a crazy time, and I would not take it back for anything in the world. Great sunset hike, just don't get stuck taking too many pictures like I did or you might find yourself stranded on Baldy for the night. We went around June 13th and we encountered snow going up, the weather was chilly up top, very quiet hike you can hear the road miles away from the top, incredible moment of my life.
