Description

The Soda Canyon Overlook Trail provides visitors with beautiful scenery of many forms. Starting at the trailhead off Mesa Top Ruins Rd., the trail remains flat, traveling near the canyon rim through stands of vibrant gamble oak and Utah juniper before reaching a series of canyon overlooks.

Gaze out from multiple overlooks at the surrounding terrain, and keep your eyes peeled for the Balcony House cliff dwelling located to the southwest.

This trail does not offer much shade, so it's imperative for visitors to bring plenty of sunscreen and water, especially during the hot summer months.

Flora & Fauna

Utah juniper, gambel oak, yucca, and sagebrush are abundant along the trail.
