  • Trailhead Notes: Located just below Lava Point, this trailhead is the western terminus of the West Rim Trail, which provides access to a variety of technical canyoneering adventures, including: Right Fork, Kolob Creek, Boundary Canyon, Full Imlay Canyon, and Full Heaps Canyon. The last mile of the road follows the north side of Lava Point, the last place to hold snow in the spring, making it the last road to open in the Zion High Country. When the road is too muddy to drive safely, we drop hikers off at Lava Point Campground, where a 1-mile downhill hike (The Barney Trail) reaches the West Rim Traillhead. With greater snowpack, the unpaved Lava Point road closes completely, and hikers will be dropped off at the nearest reachable point, likely the head of Lava Point Road OR the Wildcat Canyon Trailhead.

  • Each shuttle price includes a $5 per person non-refundable booking fee. Shuttles may be cancelled no later than NOON (12 PM) of the day prior to departure and are refundable, minus the $5 per person booking fee. Cancellations made after NOON (12 PM) of the day prior to departure will be charged the full amount due.

    If you fail to cancel your shuttle reservation, or cancel it too late, you may need to take a deep breath when you later see charges for a shuttle you never rode on. Please remember, however, we kept your seat for you, and things outside our control prevented you from filling that seat.
