Distance: 4.8 miles


Red rock cliffs are the backdrop for this 4.8-mile point-to-point that traverses part of a 62,000-acre wildlife preserve near St. George‰ÛÓkeep an eye peeled for trailside tortoises!

  • Scout Cave Trail

This point-to-point route begins near the south side of the Paradise Canyon area of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. Step over the gate on the north side of the parking area onto the Chuckwalla Trail. You'll head downhill toward Halfway Wash before turning north onto the Beck Hill Trail. The rocky trail climbs 500 feet over the next 2 miles, joining the Scout Cave Trail near the edge of the reserve. At the high point, stop for a breathtaking cliff-top overlook above the city of Santa Clara. If you haven't pre-arranged a shuttle from Snow Canyon Parkway to the Chuckwalla Trailhead, consider turning back at the canyon's edge, this eastern section of trail makes a 6-mile out-and-back.

Though the entire route is rugged, if you continue north expect a steep and narrow descent on the Scout Cave Trail. Allow for extra time near the top of the hill to navigate. Near trail end, follow the Scout Cave Trail around recent developments, or make up lost time with an easy road descent through them for the final mile to the parkway.

A newly constructed roadside bike path makes for an easy 3.5-mile bicycle shuttle between trail end on the Snow Canyon Parkway and the Chuckwalla Trailhead.
