Canaan Mountain

Canaan Mountain is one of my favorite hikes. You begin in Hildale (pligamist city) and hike through Water Canyon and then up to Canaan Mountain. You can hike for a while and turn around or go all the way to Rockville which is just south of Zion National Park.

Tanya ?

I was just checking it out on the topo.
Does Water Canyon always have running
water? Don't you have to go OVER the
Vermillion Cliffs to get to Canaan Mtn.,
or can you just hike up Water Canyon???

What are we looking at as far as mileage,
from Hildale to the BASE of Canaan Mountain?
Okay, thank you very much!

(Isn't a WHITE HOODOO called a Goblin?
What is the difference between a Hoodoo
and a Goblin, or are they pretty much the
same??? Thank you, thank you, gracias!!!)

Re: Tanya ?

Water Canyon does have running water. Check out the big waterfalls titled Water Canyon in my album. It is also a canyoneering route. You park in Hildale and hike up Water Canyon to get there. It's not long in miles to get to 'Top Rock', but it's sure steep! A good hike to get the heart pumping.

One day


I'm not sure if a white hoodoo is called a goblin, but I like it. :)
