DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD

Directions to Trailhead. From St George, head north on Bluff Street for 2.1 miles and turn left onto Sunset Blvd. Continue 4.5 miles through Santa Clara, and as you head up the hill toward Ivins, take the first left. This road will quickly turn to dirt and should lead you down, across a wash and to a large parking area for the trail head. Tukupetsi Trail head is across the street from the parking area. Get on the trail and go left for a few hundred feet until you see the trail marker for Een’oog.  U’waiv begins a few feet from the start of Een’oog.  Trail can also be accessed from the Enepitsi trail. Have a great time!
