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.

Check out the peaceful Jumpoff Canyon

Tom’s experience at Jumpoff Canyon:

Jumpoff Canyon is a short loop hike in Ogden, Utah.

Jump Off Canyon Trail

You start off hiking almost in backyards as you follow the trail, but eventually you hike past them and come out above them with a great view of Ogden.

Jump Off Canyon Hike

There are plenty of signs to help guide you along the trail. I would recommend hiking the loop clockwise and following the north trail.

Hiking Jump Off Canyon

Eventually you will reach a service road that Pine View Water uses to service the open canal along the mountainside. Be careful if water is flowing in the canal, it could be dangerous for little children if they fell in.

Hike Jump Off Canyon

Hike along the canal for a bit and then follow the trail back down to your car. It really isn’t a very spectacular hike but it could make for a fun bike ride.

Jump Off Canyon Ogden

Dogs are allowed but must be on leash.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trail is located across the street from the St. James Catholic Church near 450 N. Harrison Blvd. There is only parking for about 8 cars but there is plenty of other parking near the trailhead.
