The trailhead for Huber Wash is located between Rockville, Utah and Virgin, Utah. To reach the Huber Wash from the south entrance of Zion National Park, follow these directions:
1 Drive east on Utah Highway 9 for 6 miles.
2. Turn right (north) onto a pullout area which is about 100 yards east of the Huber Wash sign.
3. Park and begin your hike by going through the gate and closing it behind you as there are cattle in the area,
The Huber Wash trail takes you through some of Zion’s less traveled painted desert countryside with its juniper, yucca and petrified wood. As in other places in Zion National Park, it is requested that you do not pick up pieces of petrified wood from within Park boundaries so that other visitors may have the same hiking experience as you for years to come. Along the Huber Wash trail, you will see great views of Cougar Mountain, a hanging garden, which is especially beautiful in Spring when plenty of water is flowing in the streams, The Towers of the Virgin, The Altar of Sacrifice, The Bishopric, oil well ruins from many years ago, and a few waterfalls.
