Overview

Bunkerville Ridge, bordering the Grand Parashant National Monument, is one of the reasons why you purchase an off-road vehicle. Once a thriving mining district, the region found a resurgence as a popular OHV area. The trail has a beautiful mix of desert plant life, rocky landscapes, and points of interest that captivate everyone. There is an old water tank made to look like a steam locomotive. A natural arch is just a short walk from the trail. You can hike into a slot canyon with cascading waterfalls during the spring and early summer. Side trails lead to multiple old mine sites. You'll wind your way through a narrow canyon, climb steep hills, and ride along narrow ledges, all while enjoying spectacular views of the Virgin Mountains. Be sure to check this one out!
