You will need to come visit Kanab repeatedly to enjoy all of these cool hiking trails!

Our current favorite right now has to be The Mansard Trail

This awesome trail starts just 6.5 miles East of town in the community known as Vermillion Cliffs. You will head up this Butte and all the way across its flat, sandy top to end up at some of the most intriguing petroglyphs in the area.

It is a bit of a climb and one part there is a minor rock scramble, but this old, out of shape lady can do it! It took us about 4hrs total last time we were there. But we did enjoy a picnic lunch among the petroglyphs as well.

Ancient lunch spot? Napkin, Salt shaker, and Sardine key. What do you think?

You can get a copy of these detailed instructions at the visitors center downtown. Just make sure you get the Mansard “Hike” map, as there is also a map for getting there on ATV roads from the other side of the Butte
