DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD

Directions to Trailhead:  From St George, head north on S 700 E toward E 600 S.  Turn right onto St George Blvd.  At the intersection, turn left onto N 1000 E then turn right onto E Red Hills Pkwy at the light.  After 0.9 miles, turn left onto Cottonwood Springs Rd.  Continue straight as road turns into Old Dump Rd and keep a left when road bends.

The trailhead can be found almost at the end of Old Dump Rd on the right.  A sign is clear to see from the road but Old Dump Rd is a dirt road so its bumpy.

Plants: Typical plant life for Southern Utah lowland hiking.
