For springtime hiking, you couldn’t choose a lovelier trail than Negro Bill Canyon. This trail is a favorite of our Head Housekeeper, Bek, and is an easy hike for all skill levels.
The canyon was named after William “Bill” Granstaff who prospected and ran cattle in the desert canyon in the late 1870s. Bek frequents this canyon because it is so peaceful and fairly shaded this time of year. Following alongside a creek most of the way, this trail is a good short hike choice for families with children and dogs.
3.2 miles from the trail head, the trail ends at the Morning Glory Natural Bridge. Visit http://alltrails.com/trail/us/utah/negro-bill-canyon for more information, and say “Hi” to Bek if you pass him on this great trail!
TIP: Wear sport sandals or take off your shoes for the creek crossings. The water is cool and refreshing, and the sand is soft.
