Jeff, thanks for your question! As of today, the total permit number limit is 150 per day. The best way to secure your permit is to order them online here https://www.kanarrafalls.com/.

Looks like the high today is supposed to be 58 degrees. Lows are still in the 30's so the water temps are going to be mid 30's to low 40's. Waterproof shoes, or at least neoprene socks will help keep you from getting too cold. Half of this trail is in water, so you will want to have that protection. Also, once you get into the canyon, there will be little to no direct sunlight, so it will be cold. Plan accordingly!

Erika, thanks for your question! This trail is great throughout the year, but yes, temps are much cooler than St George, so you want to plan accordingly if you're planning to come late fall through late spring. Because of the popularity of the trail, there can be bottlenecks at the waterfalls that can cause long delays, so you need to make sure you are prepared with water, etc. The number of permits is now restricted, so make sure you buy a permit online before coming!

Yes, you can purchase the permit at the trailhead.

Brittney, thanks for your question! The falls can be hiked year round, but the colder it gets, the more prepared you need to be. Our advice is to check the forecast before going and make sure you know what temperatures to plan for. The canyon will be 5-10 degrees cooler than the advertised temp. The water flows down from higher elevations too, so as the season progresses the water temps will get cooler and cooler. If you have neoprene socks it will make things more comfortable, but you can do other things to warm up your feet as well!

Jonathan, thanks for your comment. I looked into the issue and it looks like Iron County pulled the site down and has added a page on their website. The info page can be found at this link https://www.visitcedarcity.com/kanarra-falls/. The permits can be purchased on their permit site at https://kanarracreekfalls.jubileetix.com/?pin=1013. If you continue to have problems, contact Iron County Tourism. They are helping field questions and concerns about the hike.

Ben, thanks for your suggestion. Iron County and the town of Kanarraville are the organizations that would be best to take this up with. Contact info is listed on this website www.kanarrafalls.com. We do our best to put out the trail info for the area, but as a private company have no direct affiliations with the land managers. Hope this helps!

Logan, thanks for your question. I spoke with the county (the ones who oversee the permitting) and they said that the time indicates the time you CAN start hiking. You can go anytime during the day. Hope this helps!

Leah, I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience! I can see your frustration! I would encourage you to contact Iron County (contact details can be found at www.kanarrafalls.com) and let them know your complaint. We are not connected with the administration or management of the trail, but we do want each hiker to have a great experience! Hope this helps!
