Stunning view of Zion!

Disregard all the signs coming up the road saying private land and no camping, the BLM land is just past the cattle gate and there’s a sign saying “entering public land” so you’re all set!

It’s a loop on top and there are spots sporadically through the entire loop. Highly recommend the west side…

Nice but confusing

Unless your following the map it gives you while someone else is driving then it will take you to the public lands area to hike. I didn’t see any camping sites just an area with a vault toilet at the start of the hiking area. The written directions in the post are confusing and the locals here are…

Fantastic Views

Found this spot last minute on our way up to Zion NP, we got in late at night. The views are absolutely amazing & very spacious grounds to have a good camp site without bothering others. The roads are a little scary to drive at night & you should have four wheel drive but overall an amazing…

Directions

Eagle Crags Trailhead—From I-15 Exit 16, travel west on State Route 9 to Hurricane City. Continue through Hurricane City, LaVerkin City, Town of Virgin on SR 9. In Rockville, turn right on Bridge Road (set the trip odometer here) and follow it south over the historic lattice truss bridge that crosses the Virgin River. Continue heading south until reaching a sharp right bend in the road that appears to be a three-way intersection at 0.3 miles. Continue south on the leftmost road, leaving the pavement. The gravel road soon turns to dirt and ascends a steep escarpment to the top of the mesa. This section of the road is often impassable when wet, even with a high-clearance, 4WD vehicle. After reaching the top of the mesa, ignore the small side roads that go to private property (and are marked as such) and stick to the main dirt road that heads southeast. At 1.0 miles, bear right at the unmarked Y intersection. (The left road leads to the communication towers). Eventually, you will cross a cattle guard after a sharp bend to the left (where the road begins to bear northeast). About 1.8 miles after turning onto Bridge Road, the Eagle Crags Trailhead appears on your right. Park and head for the information kiosk, where the trail begins at the marker denoting “Eagle Crags” trail. Note: A high-clearance, 4WD vehicle is recommended for accessing this trailhead.
