Trail Info

Quail Creek State Park

Quail Creek State Park sits in the channel of the enigmatic Virgin Anticline, formed by volcanic activity and exposing 20,000,000 of geology along its ridgelines, exposing ancient limestone shale, evidence of an inland sea that blanketed much of the area. Nearby dinosaur tracks and petroglyphs speak of inhabitants from eons past. Warm waters attract paddlers, swimmers, boaters and beach-goers, as well as migrating birds that visit along instinctive routes, punctuated by waterways in the Mojave Desert. Cliffs and coves afford great places to swim, jump, dive, or relax. Hiking and mountain bike trails surround the lake, with over 25 miles of trail along its 5-mile perimeter.

Sand Hollow

Sand Hollow’s paddling opportunities are unique. We typically cruise along the undulating, eroded red sandstone shoreline, duck in and out of coves, swim in the warm shallows (summer months), visit popular cliff-jumping spots, and explore the Desert Pearl island that is home to Southern Utah’s only outdoor scuba dive park, which is off-limits to motorized vessels and absolutely open for paddle-craft and swimmers. Panoramic views sweep across the northern horizon that include many of the peaks of Zion National Park.

Gunlock State Park

Gunlock State Park is characteristic of the southern Utah area, and has red sandstone islands and boulders to beckon and tease you as you paddle along the reservoir’s shores.  Cliffs forged in cataclysm and eroded by ongoing forces reach to the east, where volcanic flows drape across an ancient underbase.  Paddle to the north channel of the lake, where trees and shrubs provide cover, protection, and great vantage points for nesting and migrating fowl.  Sandy coves and trailheads emerge along the opposite side of the reservoir from our office, making a great place for a picnic or photo shoot.  Sunsets are spellbinding, should you be lucky enough to stay and see it firsthand.


Q Where is Gunlock State Park?

Gunlock State Park is just 15 minutes from both Ivins and Santa Clara, UT, and only 20 minutes from Sunset Blvd. in St. George.
