Trailhead Directions


Map to Chamberlain's Ranch Trailhead

Driving Directions: Exit Zion National Park, driving East on State Route 9. 2.5 miles after leaving the East Entrance, turn left on North Fork Road.  After 5 miles, the pavement ends at Ponderosa Resort.  Continue on a rough, unmaintained, dirt road for another 13 miles to a bridge.  Turn left at T, then drive 1/4 mile to Chamberlain’s Ranch main gate.  Enter and close gate. 

This and the first 3 miles of the hike are private property.  Please do not defecate, collect walking sticks, or disturb this property (locally enforced).  North Fork Road is impassible after heavy rains, even with 4-wheel drive. Even in good conditions, cars with low clearance may not survive the ruts and rocks. It is worth hiring a trailhead shuttle to avoid the three-hour round-trip to retrieve your car after the 16-mile hike.
