Hero: Poverty Gulch Rim Overlooks
small-sr Icon

This trail visits two spectacular overlooks on the rim of Poverty Gulch, looking down into Parunweap Canyon toward Poverty Flats, the White Cliffs, and Zion National Park. The road is mostly easy sand in tight trees but is more challenging in snow.

Most of the route is on SITLA land, where camping is technically prohibited but not signed. However, the main (north) overlook is on BLM land where camping is allowed. The viewpoint would make an amazing campsite as long as it's not windy.
