The Virgin River Trail is the signature off-road trail in St. George. The paved multi-use path follows the Virgin River on the north side for 5 miles between Confluence Park and Fossil Falls Park, then continues for another 4 miles on a gravel surface north to Washington, just past Grapevine Pass Wash. The trail features mostly open terrain, with views of the surrounding mountains & rocks. Note that it’s modestly uphill headed in the northerly direction. There are several offshoots and spur trails:

  • At Riverside, the Virgin River Trail South spur, for 2.5 miles to Bloomington Hills North Park. MAP
