Kayenta Canyon Hellhole Trail

Tom’s experience hiking the Kayenta Canyon or Hellhole Trail:

This trail near Ivins, Utah goes by two names – The Kayenta Canyon Trail and Hellhole Trail. Kayenta Canyon Trail

The trail begins just of of Taviawk Drive next to a signed pull-off in the Kayenta development of property.

Zion Kayenta Canyon

Flash floods could be a threat here so be sure to check the weather before you go.

Kayenta Canyon St George

The trail starts out and you can keep to the west side of the actual canyon or stay low and follow the trail through the canyon. We saw foot prints going along both trails.

Hellhole Trail

We took the low canyon trail on the way up but took the upper canyon trail on the way back to the car.

Hellhole Canyon St George

The upper canyon trail is much quicker and easier but the lower trail was still fun. Total distance is about 3.2 miles roundtrip. Dogs are allowed on this trail.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trailhead starts right next to Taviawk Drive in the Kayenta Development in Ivins, Utah. Park in one of the pullouts and the trail begins right there.
