Description

The trail starts at the Hog Springs Rest Area, a nice picnic site on UT 95. Follow the boot-worn path across the small stream and along the banks as you make your way up the canyon. The canyon walls on either side are very impressive. If the trail is occasionally difficult to find, just follow the meandering stream. After about 1 mile, you reach a shady alcove and a wide pool. Depending on the season there will be a 6-foot waterfall above the alcove.

Once you've enjoyed your stay at the pool, retrace your steps to head back to the road and your car.

Rock formations and a vegetated floor make the Hog Canyon Trail a fun option.
