  • Huge variety of trail terrain
  • Great for all types of runner
  • Awesome views of Zion National Park
  • Free camping and parking

Windmill trail and trailhead sits just down the road from Gooseberry Mesa Trailhead in Apple Valley, Utah. Head out on this figure-8 loop for as long as you want. If you're smart, you'll bring your MTB, and you can ride the singletrack once you're done getting your run in.

This is also a great spot to set up camp and get great starlit skies.
