Moquith Mountain, Harris Mountains & South Fork Indian Canyon Conservation Areas
The Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park keeps 256 acres reserved for non-motorized
use but much of the rest of the park is an off-terrain paradise.
South Fork Indian Canyon
- South Fork Indian Canyon is located northeast of the Coral Pink Sand Dunes.
Incredible Indian pictographs are found in this area. Some are public and others
are hidden. To find the trailhead to the public pictographs, travel four miles
northeast of the dunes. Two unnamed canyons can be found at the Southfork of
Indian Canyon along with a host of vegetation and wildlife. The scenery along the South Fork Indian Canyon Pictograph
Trail is as amazing as the pictographs at the end of the trail.
Harris Mountains - The Harris Mountains are located in the Parunuweap
study area. An overlook at the top of the Harris Mountains, just north of Coral
Pink, offers spectacular views. The East Fork of the Virgin River runs westward
through Parunuweap Canyon and into Zion
Moquith Mountain - Kanab Canyon and the Grand
Canyon North Rim are on the east side of the Coral
Pink Sand Dunes State Park. These sites can be viewed, at a distance, from the
Moquith Mountains. The Moquith Mountains and Moccasin Mountains are on the south side of the
Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The Moquith Mountains make up 26,500 acres of remote Southern
Utah land. Beside dunes of sand, Vermillion Cliffs, finger-like canyons and perennial
streams decorate the land. The South
Fork Indian Canyon pictograph trail is part
of this area. Backpackers will find solitude and beauty without venturing too
deep. Canyoneers exploring South Fork Indian Creek-Water Canyon will see beautiful
hanging gardens and pristine beauty. Destinations include backpacking to the
top of the 7000' Moquith Mountain. The Sand Dunes are spectacular
from the Moquith Mountain plateau. Stay on existing trails if visiting this area.
Much of the land is designated as a BLM wilderness study area.
