The Scenic Gorge Overlook Trail Is A Magical Place In Arizona That You Thought Only Existed In Your Dreams
One of the best hikes in Arizona is a little-known trail that leads to a magical landscape you had no idea exited in the Grand Canyon State. Marvel at a vast, undulating gorge, Joshua trees, and a pristine river when you embark on the Scenic Gorge Overlook Trail near Littlefield. This easy loop looks like something from your wildest dreams!
You can access the trail via the Cedar Pockets exit on the south side of Interstate 15 (Mile Marker 18). For more information about the Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area, visit the Bureau of Land Management website.
