Toquerville Falls is much more exciting than I expected it to be! Once again, a unique area of southern Utah that isn’t a national or state park, but is equally beautiful just on a much smaller scale. There are not only falls that you can drive across, but a small wading pool and a large swimming hole! This is a great place to visit for the entire day or for just a couple of hours.

Our drive

Keith and I were stoked to experience Toquerville Falls. The pictures we had seen were amazing. We chose a weeknight to make this drive. We were staying in nearby Leeds so it was less than an hour to the trailhead. The road then turns to dirt, gravel, and rock… the road was much rougher than we expected! It took quite a while to drive the 5-6 miles to the falls, maybe 45 minutes. It was a slow bumpy ride, but so worth it!

Upon arriving at the falls we were immediately awestruck with the falls, the large pool of water, and the general beauty of the area. There were a couple of vehicles at the falls when we arrived, however, they left within minutes so we were the only ones at the falls for the next couple of hours.

First, we walked around the upper level and drove the jeep across the falls. Then we made our way down to the next level to feel the water and view the falls from another vantage point. Here we were able to get a good look at that ladder, consequently, we realized just how far down the big pool of water really is. It was fun to check out these falls in person and spend a relaxing evening at this beautiful location.
