Cassidy, Rich, & Ledge Point Trails

Location: Garfield County
Difficulty: Intermediate
Length: 3-9 miles
Time to Allow: 4-6 hours

These three trails intertwine with each other to form several loops ranging from 3 miles to 8 or more miles. The shortest loop follows the Rich Trail from the Red Canyon Trailhead for 1 mile to its junction with the Ledge Point Trail. A half-mile climb takes you out to Ledge Point with views of Red Canyon and out to the Sevier River, the Markagaunt Plateau, and Brian Head Peak. You can follow the short Ledge Point loop back around to the trailhead, or continue on the Cassidy Trail for another mile to its first junction with the Rich Trail, making a 5 mile loop. For a longer day hike, stay on the Rich/Cassidy system until you reach Brayton Point, where there are hitching rails for horse riders. From here, look over the edge into Losee Canyon approximately 500 feet below! Follow the trail back to the trailhead approximately 8 miles.

Directions

At approximately mile 5, turn north into the Red Canyon Trailhead parking area. A restroom and equestrian area are available.
