City Creek - St. George

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Distance: 6.1 miles round trip

TRAIL SUMMARY

City Creek is found along the trail for Owen’s Loop.  It runs for three miles until connecting with Rusty Cliffs at an underpass under Red Hills Pkwy.  The trail is popular for its view of The Ledges golf course which the path follows along the rim for a stretch.  Red Hills Pkwy is also seen throughout the hike and there are some decent views of St. George as well.  Overall, the path is clear and easy to follow.  There are signs as well but the path can get confusing when connecting with Rusty Cliffs. At the last decent there is an option to go left or right.  Left heads to the underpass and Rusty Cliffs and the options on the right connects with Red Hills Pkwy.  The map below shows both options.  Bikers are also found along the hike so please be ready to share the path.  Wildlife and even desert tortoises are encountered in this area.  Please be respectful.

Note: Trail is accessed almost a mile into Owen’s Loop or directly from Red Hills Pkwy
