Temple Trail

Bureau of Land Management, Arizona.

From 1874-1876, the LDS Church operated two saw mills at Nixon Spring. Lumber was hauled by ox team to St. George, Utah to construct the St. George LDS Temple. The Temple Trail follows this historic route along the Hurricane Cliffs and continues on through the Fort Pearce Wash. The trail has some markers along the route and is primarily used by equestrians.
