TRAIL SUMMARY

Toquerville Falls is an oasis in the desert that is best found by truck, SUV, or ATV. The road is rough, but well worth the trip.  The views are spectacular on the drive, and the waterfalls are great to look at and play in. The area is clean and great for families. This is not much of a hike, but by request and because of the popularity of the location, I decided to put up an official post about it. You won’t be sorry you made the trip!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tim LeBaron

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.

    Hi, I know my car would not be able to make it so I would like to find somewhere to park and hike to the falls. Where can we park specifically?

      Lannie, like I told Ellen below: “I want to make it very clear that I do not recommend this walk, as it will be long and extremely hot, and you’ll have a challenge carrying enough water. If you are going to park and walk, here is the point where you would have to do it from, and it will be at least 3 miles walk each direction https://goo.gl/maps/yEnvdGxY8Jh3otL5A.” Do so at your own risk…

      Ellen, first of all, I want to make it very clear that I do not recommend this walk, as it will be long and extremely hot, and you’ll have a challenge carrying enough water. If you are going to park and walk, here is the point where you would have to do it from, and it will be at least 3 miles walk each direction https://goo.gl/maps/yEnvdGxY8Jh3otL5A.

    We have a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Do you think it has enough clearance? I’m not an off roader…at all so I have no idea if it would make it! It is 4×4. Also, about how long is the rough part of the road?

      It’s very rough. We turned around halfway up in a Toyota Highlander today. Our under carriage was just getting too beat up. Your vehicle would have to be empty. Ours was weighted down with luggage and camping gear.

      To our knowledge, BLM has not limited the number of people that can visit the falls. Obviously they would recommend social distancing and practicing good sanitation habits.

    Hi! Thanks for all your input. I was wondering if there was a campground near that has full hookups and that you could off-road with a side by side from? As far as leaving your campsite with your off road vehicle and not have to to trailer your off road vehicle?

    If our car can’t make the drive over the dirt road is there somewhere to park before the dirt road and walk in and how long would that take?

      You can park and walk, but it will be a 3+ mile walk to get to the falls. So, depending on how fast you hike, it will take an hour to an hour and a half. It’s mostly downhill from where you would park, so be prepared for an uphill climb back to your car. In the heat we are forecast to have, you’ll want to make sure you have lots of water as well!

    visited end of summer on somewhat of a whim. Road is not just rough, it is extremely rough. Even 4wd veterans will want to go very slow for the first half, the second half is much more of a standard dirt road. There are a few spots that are a little freaky with drop offs but nothing extreme. I would not even attempt if there was past rain or anything looming that would make the ground even slightly wet. Once to the falls it is a very unique spot. We had fun being there by ourselves(probably pretty rare) and swam for hours. We did jump off the falls into the deepest section, but be aware that testing depth is necessary and even at that we had to “buckle” when hitting the water to keep from injuring our legs or spine. Make sure you take out any trash you bring, maybe even something that someone else left to keep this place clean.

      Hi Nathan,
      question: from the directions that are posted here, at which point would you park if you can’t continue by car due to the rough conditions?
      Thanks
