The Red Hills Parkway Trail is a fantastic way to ge t a taste of Utah's famous red rock scenery a stone's throw away from a busy city. The trail begins in north St. George, at Red Hills Parkway and 800 N as a wide sidewalk, but very soon it transitions into invitingly smooth asphalt with yellow striping. The city portion of the trail is on an upwards incline, and as you climb, you'll be exposed to sweeping views of the city unfolding below and the hills a distant hazy blue. This urban segment has no less than four pull-out parking lots, meaning you have options as to where to start your journey. For example, you might start at the highest lot and the ride downhill. After about the first mile, the city disappears behind you and red rock hillsides surround you as you climb. The view then opens up into a red-and-green panorama. This is your setting until the end of the trail on State Route 18. As you might expect, there's not a lot of shade to be found on this trail so make proper arrangements for sun protection and water before you leave.
On the east side of the trail (city side), there are four pullout parking lots along Red Hills Parkway, beginning just west of 900 St. E, and heading west.
Location: St George, UT
Trail Condition: Starting at East end trail begins as concrete sidewalk but soon changes to excellent wide pavement for remainder of trail.
Signage: St George trail system has excellent signage.
Comments: This trail provides excellent views overlooking St. George on one side of trail and red rocks on the other side. Parallels a four lane highway but still a nice ride. Not a flat trail at all, expect uphill and down. Trail connects to other trails for lots of ride options. Can’t say enough good things about the St George trail system and parks, can only get better with time and more inter-connectabilty (if such a word).
