Thunder Mountain Trail #33098

Thunder Mountain Trailhead

The Thunder Mountain Trail #33098 has some of the most spectacular red rock formations in the state of Utah. This trail takes you from tree covered washes up to the top of the Claron Formation where you will see birdseye views of the rock cliffs below. At one point you will travel across a spine while cliffs drop down on both sides of the trail.

Thunder Mountain Trail can be combined with the Red Canyon Bicycle Trail, Grandview Trail and Coyote Hollow Road to make a great 15 mile roundtrip trail.
