Hog Canyon, Kanab Utah

26 miles  Trails #1,3,5,6
This is one of my top 5 trails, (I've rode 10,000 miles, so far) smooth sandy trail, beautiful scenery, slick rock riding, and changeling spots. It is a good trail for an experienced rider.
We drove 1.5 miles north of Kanab, Ut on Hwy 89, to the Hog Canyon OHV Trail head, where you may unload our ATV's in the huge parking area. In .8 miles is the Kiosk and another large area. We took a picture of the OHV map at the kiosk, which was helpful.

The trails are well marked, some of the trails are signed most difficult or extremely difficult, but there were go around spots to use. We took trail #1 back in checking out #2, which was a dead end. We then turned south on #3, which was a interesting area on top of the plateau. We then drove thru a ravine which was changeling over to #6 trail, another plateau trail looking down on Kanab 2,000 ft below. Some trails had work done on them to remove difficult boulders, which is made it passable.
