Hero: Birthing Cave
small-aa Icon
Four wheeling, beautiful scenery, and historic sites check most of the boxes for a great day on the trail. The Birthing Cave trail navigates a rugged desert landscape in southern Utah. You'll wind through red sandstone cliffs and narrow canyons to a Native American historical site with numerous signs of past civilizations. The route leads to a turn around where the naturally formed Birthing Cave can be easily accessed on foot. Take a hike up, into, and around on the towering sandstone formations to discover hidden petroglyphs and caves. Because of the delicate nature of sandstone, the only petroglyphs left within the cave are on the floor. Be careful not to walk on the ancient markings. If you want to easily reach the cave site, run the trail in reverse to the cave and then back out the same way.
