Toquerville Falls
For the locals, Toquerville Falls was a ride to the swimming hole on a hot summer day. Now the teens are more likely to use an ATV. The ride is on dirt road. Round trip is 12 miles with 2300 vertical feel of climbing. This ride wouldn't make your Top Ten list for the area. It's scenic and the falls are pretty. But the climbing is way too tough for families and beginners, while not being particularly exciting for experienced riders.

Getting there: On I-15 about 20 miles north of St. George, take the Toquerville exit on SR-17. Drive about 4 miles. Just as you enter the town of Toquerville, watch for Spring Street on the east (left). Do not park on Spring Street -- it's tiny. Either park on SR-17, or drive uphill to find a parking spot along the dirt road.
