Distance: 5 miles round-trip

TRAIL SUMMARY

The Middle Fork of Taylor Creek Trail is a scenic easy trail that is great for Spring, Summer, and Fall, but may closed during the snow season. The trail is a single track through the woods that features a couple of old ranchers’ cabins and a cool, shady alcove at the end of the hike.  This hike is family friendly but could get a little long for kids that are not used to walking longer distances. Overall a great hike, and perfect for beating the summer heat!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hike St George

HikeStGeorge is a project that began as a seedling for Tim LeBaron in the early part of 2008, but really didn’t begin to blossom until the latter part of 2011. The original idea behind the site was to bring to light all of the harder to find, or “less known” hidden gems of the area. It was more of a pet project than anything. As excitement about the site began to spread, there was more of a push to develop information about all hikes in the Southern Utah Region.
