Greenhalgh Trail

Bureau Of Land Management, Utah.

The Greenhalgh (pronounced “Green-off”) Trail is a three- to four-mile roundtrip out-and-back hiking and equestrian trail north of Kanab, UT. The trail is named for the Greenhalgh brothers, two local characters who homesteaded the area in the 1900s.

There are two primary trailheads. Hikers and equestrian users with full-sized vehicles can park on the northeast side of Kanab Creek and continue on foot to the ATV trailhead roughly 0.4 miles down the road. Hikers with ATVs can cross the bridge and drive 0.4 miles to the ATV trailhead.

From the ATV trailhead, the Greenhalgh Trail follows an old stock trail once used to carry mail across the Coral Pink Sand Dunes from towns to the west. After just over 0.5 miles, the trail splits from the historic mail route and begins to climb the cliffs on the northern side of Trail Canyon. It continues for roughly one mile before ending at a scenic overlook just below the mesa top.

Please respect private landowners and do not enter private land on top of the mesa.

The GreenhalghTrail is open to foot and horse traffic only; bicycles and motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trail. Dogs are welcome, but their waste must be packed out. The trailheads are minimally developed, and no amenities are available. For more information and detailed maps, visit the Kanab Visitor Center (BLM) in Kanab, UT.
