This hike provides beautiful views of the Ivins & Santa Clara mountains. There is no shade on this hike, so I recommend doing it early in the morning or evening, or in the off-season. I love taking my dog on this hike! There’s lots of petroglyphs as well!
This trailhead is located just southwest of Ivins, in an area known as the Santa Clara River Preserve, off highway 91. Take Exit 6 from Interstate 15 (the Bluff Street exit) and head north. Turn left on Sunset Boulevard and follow it west through Santa Clara (the road’s name changes to Santa Clara Drive). From the Jacob Hamblin historical home in Santa Clara (the road’s name changes again to Old Highway 91), continue 3.2 miles and then turn left through metal gates onto a gravel road. Travel 0.3 miles to the trailhead parking lot.
