Water Canyon near Zion National Park~Back-Country Adventures in Southern Utah
My daughter is an avid back-country enthusiast and takes advantage of all the great state and national parks that are located close to our home in St George Utah. A couple of weeks ago she and her “posse” did the Water Canyon hike. Water Canyon is located on BLM land just south of Zion National Park. Access to the trail is located behind the remote town of Hildale Utah.
Water Canyon is a narrow canyon that offers a little bit of everything for the outdoor enthusiast…big drops, narrow slots to navigate through, swimming pools to cool off in and even a pothole! Estimated hiking time is approximately 6 hours, it’s about 3.3 miles estimated hiking distance.
