Goose Creek Wilderness

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

The 98 acres of Goose Creek are remote and rugged. Goose Creek itself, designated “wild,” flows through the Wilderness area at the start of the steep and deep Goose Creek Canyon. The elevation changes over 1,000 feet from the bottom of the canyon to top of the unit. Its southern border is contiguous with Zion National Park for half a mile. Sitting at about 7,000 feet, the landscape is typical of high elevation desert: dense tree stands on the slopes and thick riparian vegetation thriving in the canyon’s steep walled shade.


Interstate 15, Exit 42 at New Harmony/Kanarraville, right onto old Hwy 91, right onto Kanarra Mtn Rd, continue onto Lower Basin Rd until you get to the wilderness boundary, past Taylor Creek Wilderness.
