While there are not currently established trails in the Arrow Canyon Wilderness, there are designated routes, and there are many ways to access, recreate, and enjoy the area responsibly!
Arrow Canyon Hiking Route
Not an actual maintained trail, but simply a designated hiking route through a canyon subject to frequent inundation by flash flooding. This popular hike can involve wading through water and negotiating flood debris. From the designated parking area described below, hiking the canyon will involve an additional 1.5 hiking miles (each way) to access the most interesting part of the canyon. From the 4-wheel drive barrier described below, the Arrow Canyon trail winds through vertical rock formations for about 3 miles where it ends at the terminus of a 4-wheel drive route, which enters the canyon from the northwest. Several side canyons join Arrow Canyon from the south and offer deeper exploration opportunities into the Wilderness for those skilled in backcountry navigation and travel. “To access Arrow Canyon, drive state Highway 168 east from Interstate 15 approximately 11 miles and then turn south onto a graded dirt road, framed by an arc of telephone poles and short white fence on either side. Markers behind the telephone poles mark the designated vehicle route to the canyon. Approximately 0.5 miles off Highway 168, there is parking just past the fenced municipal well. There is one private residence along the route – please respect their privacy. For those with a high clearance vehicle, continue for 1.5 miles to a vehicle barrier where the road ends. ”- Wilderness.net
Arrow Canyon Range Highpoint
From I-15, follow US 93 22 miles north to a dirt service road that turns east toward a powerline. Follow this road about ¾ of a mile east and park your vehicle on the side of the powerline road. From here the high point of the range lies slightly south of due east. Although the highpoint itself cannot be seen from here, the ridge containing the high point dominates the eastern horizon. To proceed to the high point, backcountry navigation and route finding skills are required to determine a safe and effective path to the highpoint. The highpoint lies about 1.5 miles toward the east and 2,600 feet above where your car is parked. This is a strenuous climb!
Table Mountain and the Northern portion Arrow Canyon Wilderness
Three designated routes provide access to the northern portion of the Wilderness. The first of these routes, which turns south from Highway 168 about 16 miles from I-15, provides access to Table Mountain and the north end of Arrow Canyon. The second route turns south from Highway 168 about 18.5 northwest of I-15. and provides access to Paranagahat Wash. The third access route turns south down Paranagahat Wash from Sawmill Road about two miles east of Highway 168. All three of these routes provide access to remote sections of the north boundary of the Wilderness and offer outstanding opportunities for skilled backcountry explorers to enjoy the wilderness.
