Embracing outdoor life is key to fully appreciating the wonder that is Southern Utah. Life in St. George, Utah includes access to scenic hiking trails, miles of running and biking trails, camping locations, National Parks and of course, golf.
Kanarraville Falls is one of the hikes in Southern Utah that shouldn’t be missed. Just 30 miles north of St. George not too far off of I-15, you can find this hidden slot canyon that is a perfect hike for kids and adults alike.
Recently, we hiked to the falls at a fairly leisurely pace, went all the way up to the second waterfall (mind you these are 14 foot waterfalls, not 40 foot waterfalls), allowed the kids quite a bit of time to play in the water and were back down to the car in 3.5 hours.
Wear hiking shoes that can get wet. We had people in tennis shoes or sturdy water shoes. Don’t wear flimsy sandals or flip flops. Take water to drink.
Finding the trail isn’t hard. Exit I-15 at the “New Harmony/Kanarraville” exit. It is close to mile marker 41. Follow the road signs to Kanarraville—about a 5 minute drive east of the freeway. In the middle of town there is a small sign that points to Kanarraville Falls parking. The parking lot is three blocks off the main road. Parking cost $10, so plan to pay or follow the posted instructions to free parking back down by the main road. There is no cost to hike the trail. You start on a dirt road and eventually move onto trails. Keep following the creek up the little canyon to experience the beauty.
This is just one of the many great reasons that the Chris Jones Real Estate Team enjoys living and selling real in St. George.
