Enjoy a relaxing day at the cool Toquerville Falls

Tom’s experience enjoying the Toquerville Falls:

Toquerville Falls is a beautiful waterfall outside of St. George, Utah. The falls really are an oasis in the desert.

They can be a bit of a challenge to get to without a good four wheel drive vehicle. The road to the falls is dirt and very rocky.

We rarely have problems on dirt roads but this road gave us a run for our money. We saw plenty of trucks with a higher clearance than us and they all seemed to make it fine.

Also there were a few ATVs that also didn’t seem to have a problem. There are a few camping spots by the falls if you are interested in spending the night.

Otherwise you can swim and play near the waterfall as long as you’d like. Dogs are allowed here.

 

Playing in the fallsWhen we went there was no easy way to get to the lower falls swimming area without rappeling equipment.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: Take exit 27 off of I15 and drive 2.6 miles southeast to Toquerville. Just as you enter the town turn left onto Spring Drive. Spring Drive will start off paved but will turn to dirt and then will become very rocky. Follow Spring Drive for 3.6 miles and the road will fork. Take the right fork and continue for about 2 miles. Here you will turn to the right and head down to the falls. You can drive over the falls if your vehicle can make it.

Find the hidden Menu Falls in Zion

Tom’s Experience at Menu Falls:

Menu Falls is a little alcove with a waterfall in Zion National Park. It isn’t very well known and is usually seldom visited especially when the shuttles are running. It got its name because it was included on the cover of the original Zion Lodge menu.

Menu Falls Zion National Park

Menu Falls is located about .5 miles up Zion Canyon from the Big Bend shuttle stop. If you go when the shuttles aren’t running there is a small turnoff on each side of the road to park while you visit the falls. There isn’t much of a hike from the road.

Heading to Menu Falls

A short trail will take you to a small deck that allows you to view the falls. Menu Falls is pretty small and doesn’t have a ton of water but it is still a nice spot to visit. Dogs are not allowed on most trails in Zion National Park.

Menu Falls Trail Info: 

Menu Falls is about .5 miles after the Big Bend shuttle stop. If you go when the shuttles are running you will have to walk from there. If you are able to drive up canyon, you can drive right to the base of the deck.
