This hike is along a paved road that leads to a beautiful view over the valley. Our 4 year old did go "off road" a few times to climb up and down rocks and overall loved it as did we!

This trail is level and paved - suitable for all ages - with spectacular views of Page Valley. There are informational signs posted along the way; unfortunately, vandals have defaced some of them.

This is a great little trail! It's paved, making it wheelchair and stroller accessible. Short enough for my 3 year old to make it up and back without needing to be carried. Beautiful view awaits you at the top when it's clear

It's short, but beautiful with a great view. The paved path was good for our 4 &6 year olds. The kids climbed on large rocks, that they called "the playground", that were safe enough. A couple miles farther down the stone road is another great...More

The Storybook Trail is paved and level - appropriate for all ages. The view at the end of a short walk is of the spectacular Page Valley, and if you do this trail on a clear day, you'll be rewarded with terrific long-range views.
