Beartrap Canyon Wild and Scenic River

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

The source of spectacular Bear Trap Canyon begins on private property on the south side of a 40 acre BLM parcel and terminates on the western boundary of the Bear Trap Canyon Wilderness and into Zion National Park. The stream is a deeply incised, high elevation canyon with vertical sandstone walls hundreds of feet tall with stringers of mixed conifer forest, mountain shrub and riparian vegetation including unique “hanging gardens”. Exceptional recreation potential exists for hiking, camping and cayoneering. Don’t Miss: Outstanding climbing possibilities and breathtaking hanging gardens.


From Interstate 15, Exit 42 at New Harmony/Kanarraville, right onto old Hwy 91, right onto Kanarra Mtn Rd, continue onto Lower Basin Rd, Beartrap will be down in the canyon
