Off Road Trail Spotlight: Toquerville Falls

It’s no secret that Utah is home to some of the most incredible off-roading trails in the country. We at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive can attest to that. We regularly organize trail rides to get as many people as possible to experience the incredible trails that the southwest has to offer. Many visitors are often surprised that there’s so much variety to choose from- from hardcore trails to more leisurely scenic ones.

While Sand Hollow is definitely the crown jewel in this part of the country as far as off-roading playgrounds go, it’s by no means the only area where you can take your 4WD for a spin. You can get plenty of other off-roading opportunities near St. George. One of these is the Toquerville Falls Trail.

Trail Overview

Toquerville Falls is a fun, rewarding and moderately difficult trail just off the beaten path to the north of St. George. This amazing set of waterfalls is on La Verkin Creek which goes on to drain into the Virgin River. The area doubles up as a popular biking, hiking and swimming destination so watch out for other trail users.

To get there, you first need to get to the town of Toquerville in South Utah then drive to the falls. The drive typically takes about half an hour from St. George to Toquerville then about 30 minutes to an hour to get to the falls. Four-wheel drive and high clearance are highly recommended to take on this trail because it gets extremely rough in some spots and you will encounter several ruts, rocks, and boulders.

The falls at the end of the trip make it worthwhile and you can take time to relax and have a refreshing dip in the cool water, especially if it’s a hot summer day. The trail crosses the creek and depending on the time of year and water level, it is possible to drive across the creek.


The trail from Toquerville is scenic and includes some amazing panoramas. The two-stage, horse-shoe shaped falls with a grotto at the bottom are lovely and so is the surrounding area. You can opt to take a bonus detour and stop at the Toquerville Towers to get the full impact of the panoramic view. While up there you’ll be delighted by the magnificent scenery and incredible views of the Kolob section of Zion National Park, Sand Mountain, Hurricane Cliffs, Silver Reef, and the Pine Valley Mountains.

Trail Surface and Obstacles

The road to Toquerville Town is paved and shouldn’t present any problems. However, the access road down to the falls themselves has plenty of difficult spots and involves going over small boulders and rocks, especially for the first 2 or 3 miles at the beginning of the trail. This can easily be handled by a stock 4WD vehicle. The road to Toquerville Towers is steep and rocky but that too can be tackled with a stock four-wheeler with no problem.

Overall, this is a moderately difficult trail perfect for those looking for a lovely out-of-the-way location to spend an afternoon.
