DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD

This trail can either start off Navajo Drive in Bloomington, or it can be started at Green Valley Gap by the water tank. A popular option is to shuttle the trail by leaving a car at the Navajo Dr. Trail Head then using another car to start at the Green Valley Gap Trail Head.

Get Directions to Navajo Drive Trail Head. Head west on Dixie Drive and turn left on 600 West. Turn right (first exit on the round about) onto Tonaquint Drive and continue 1.3 miles. Turn right onto Bloomington Drive and follow for .8 miles. Turn right onto Navajo Drive and follow until you cross over the cattle guard and the trail head will be on your right.

Get Directions to Green Valley Gap Trail Head. On Dixie Drive head west for 2 miles and turn left on Canyon View Drive. Follow Canyon View Drive up to the top of the hill. At the stop sign you will see the road end and turn to dirt in front of you. Continue on the dirt and follow the dirt road that takes you down, across the valley and back up the other side of the hill. As you near the water tank on the hill you will see a gate and a parking area. Park and ride up the hill and the trail head is up next to the water tank.
