We left Bryce Canyon on Monday and heading towards St George Utah to the Washington County Regional Park. This is a huge public equestrian Facility just before the town of Washington in the Hurricane area. You can park you trailer here without hookup for free. Stalls are $15 a night and corrals are $5.
Take Exit 16 heading south on I-15 and go east you will come down the hill and take your first right on 5300 West you can not miss the facility.
Contact info 1-435-652-4000
From this area you can trailer out to all kinds of riding. The first night we just hiked out back and took our horses.
|Getting Close to Hurricane|
Once you get off I-15 and head down highway 9 you will see the grounds to the equestrian Park on your right below.
There is a track, indoor and outdoor ring
|Lots of room for the biggest of truck and trailers|
The first night we took our friends the Mack's for a hike. I rode for a bit then let one of the kids ride for a while
|The trails had nice footing.|
To get to the trail head we headed back North about 20miles to the Zion/Kolob Canyon. You will see the Brown National Park sign for Zion. It is at exit 40.
We headed to the top and turned around and came back to the second parking lot going up from Lees Pass Trailhead.
It is a short ride from the second parking lot to the trailhead.
All and all the footing was very good.
Once you get to the bottom the footing is all sandy
Picture of me and Hunter under the big red cliffs of Zion.
We hooked up with a Hiker from Texas who took this shot. Thank you Nick :)
We hiked up to see the Arch and when it say no stock they mean NO STOCK the trail is just not passable.
|Almost back to trailer with Nick in tow.|
Our next adventure took us to the South side of Zion for a hiking trip with the Mack Family.
We hiked all the trails.
Lots of wildlife here. Pictured above and below are both Raccoon tracks and Bobcat
