|Most visitors to Utah visit the better known National Parks and Monuments. Living here gives an opportunity to visit other areas. This is a terrific place not far from Cedar Breaks or the Brianhead Resort.
Along RT 143 a few miles south of Parowan you'll see a sign for Left Hand Canyon. This road is paved for a few miles then is graded gravel. Going in you'll eventually come to Yankee Meadow and a nice reservoir.|
There are at least three trailheads along here Vermillion Castle, Noah's Ark and Henderson Hill. All are good uphill hikes of about 1-1 1/2 miles each way.
By continuing down 143 about a 1/4 mile further you'll come to another road, unmarked on the left. This is Second Left Hand Canyon, go figure. By travelling approx 5 miles back on a fair dirt road you'll come to a trailhead for Hendrickson Lake. This was one of my favorite hikes, about 1 mile each way. Views of Red Rock, forests and finally a small, secluded lake. Trout were rising when we were there in Aug.
