Gooseberry Mesa National Recreation Trail is located on Gooseberry Mesa in southern Utah’s red rock country. At an elevation of 5,200 feet, views from the mesa rims are spectacular. Rising to the north are the massive sandstone sentinels of Zion National Park. Spread out below the west rim is a panorama of colorful desert mesas and water carved canyons.

The Gooseberry Mesa National Recreation Trail is actually a system of trails sweeping across the mesa. Developed in the late 1990’s through cooperative efforts, it received National Recreation Trail status in 2006.
