Silver Rim

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Distance: 6 miles round trip

TRAIL SUMMARY

Located right outside of Silver Reef, Silver Rim is the first trail into the Dixie National Forest.  The trail is 6 miles round trip and somewhat clear with markings.  Most hikers enjoy hiking 1 mile with a 400 feet elevation to a spectacular view which features Quail Lake, Silver Reef, and even a piece of Zion National Park.  After this view, hikers can choose to descend and continue down the path deeper into the Dixie National Forest.  There are some incredible rock formations along the path and the peaks of Pine Valley Mountain can be seen.  After about 2 miles, the path becomes less clear.  Overall the full hike is 6 miles round trip but be prepared to almost carve your own path as you go deeper.
