Description

The Red Canyon Golden Wall Trail in Dixie National Forest offers puptacular scenery on a natural-surface pathway. The trailhead is near the canyon's visitor center. When you start your hike, you'll see juniper and ponderosa pines. Along the way, there will be some incredible views of the surrounding rock formations. Among the spires, hoodoos, and pinnacles, you'll find the trail's namesake. Towering above the pathway, the Golden Wall is a series of vertical rock walls that are golden-yellow. Look for the balanced rock on one end of this structure.

This trail has some loose rock as well as inclines and descents, so watch your footing here. It's best to come in spring or fall. That way, you can avoid snow, ice, and mud in the winter and extreme heat in the summer. There are beautiful wildflowers that grow in the area. Along the way, you'll find a few spur trails that lead to additional scenic views. Combine this pathway with other area footpaths to create a loop back to the visitor center.

Dogs that are secure on a cord or lead can come here with you. Keep them with you on the trail for your safety. Honor the park by leaving nothing behind but your footprints. Collect and carry out your pet's waste when you visit here. It can get hot and dry in this high desert area, so make sure you have ample water with you.
