Coral Pink Sand Dunes: Bo Beck and Kyra Milligan

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 Canyon wilderness 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 National 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.
