Fallen Trees - The trail really needs some maintenance, hardly visible most of the way up with lots of rocks and derby in the way. History

A good climb on the Historic Babylon Trail overlooking LaVerkin City.

Overview

Description

Start from the bottom of Grapevine Wash & quickly join the creek as the trail cuts through the rock of East Reef. Shortly after entering the narrow sandstone slot, about 200 feet from the trailhead on the left side, about 10 feet up, there are petroglyphs on the sandstone.

Then, in about 1/3 of a mile, you'll do several creek crossings & at mile 2, you'll hit the toughest part of the climb as the pitch gets steeper & a little more technical. Although the trail has a gradual climb, there are 2 very steep sections.
