This easy SUV trail goes to an awesome set of waterfalls on La Verkin Creek. In the winter the falls vary in depth, but you can usually pull out and get a snapshot of your vehicle fording the creek above the falls. There are a few bonus stops along the way back. One stop is to the Toquerville Towers, perched on a steep mountaintop above I-15 and the small town of Toquerville. The next stop will be at the Babylon Mill. This is an abandoned mill located on the banks of the Virgin River just north of La Virken. The last stops are at historic silver mines and graveyard in the Silver Reef area.
The road from Toquerville to the falls is very scenic, with great views to Kolob Canyon area to the north. Toquerville Falls are a set of horseshoe shaped falls that drop into a nice grotto. From Toquerville Towers there are panoramic views of parts of Zion Park, Pine Valley Mountains, Leeds, Silver Reef, Sand Mountain, and Hurricane Cliffs. The Babylon Mill is in a pretty spot along the Virgin River. Watch for Desert Tortoise along the way to the Mill, as this is in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve.
