Hikes Utah State Parks

Kodachrome Basin Nature Trail

(Last Updated On: May 22, 2019)

If you end up in Kodachrome Basin State Park, you should walk the nature trail. This easy trail is only ½ mile round trip. The Kodachrome Basin Nature Trail is flat and wheel friendly, even though it isn’t paved.

The nature trail begins right from the parking area and is wheel friendly.

The trail makes a loop through a small section of the park. There are signs and inspirational quotes along the trail. We loved stopping to read the quotes since they were all by famous people like Albert Einstein or Henry David Thoreau. We also enjoyed the nature signs. They teach about the desert plants and animals that live in this Utah State Park. 

There are lots of little signs along the way with inspirational quotes and information about Kodachrome Basin State Park.

The nature trail also gives you a small glimpse at some of the rock formations that make up Kodachrome Basin State Park. You walk right beneath some of the towering rocks and can see the different colors of sandstone that make up the beautiful rocks. 

The trail is flat and easy, and it walks through the juniper trees.
It is a fun trail through the interesting rock formations.

This trail is a great introduction to Kodachrome Basin State park. Even the littlest hiker can make it along this trail since it is flat and easy. If you are looking for something else to see, check out Angel’s Palace, which begins across the street, or you can walk the Grand Parade Trail which is a little further down the road.
