Sevier River Trail

A paved biking/hiking trail follows the Sevier river along an old railroad grade from Sevier Junction through Marysvale Canyon.

We joined the trail near the old Eagle Rock tunnel, because of falling rock inside the tunnel and the cost of making it safe, not to mention losing its historic value the trail goes round the tunnel rather than through it.

Although it climbs steadily it’s an easy trail

with nice views across the canyon and of the fast flowing river.

white water rafters floated past on their way to the take out spot further down

The day we hiked fire teams were busy damping down the remains of a brush fire on both sides of the river, thankfully they’d managed to catch it before it did too much damage.

Have fun, we are!
