Flicker Trail

Recommended Users: Equestrians, Hikers, Mountain Bikers
Type:  Two-track
Length: 0.23 miles
Difficulty: Easy/Easiest 
Sub-Area: Babylon
Zone:  Upland
Managing Agency:  BLM
Access:  Sand Cove Trailhead— From I-15 Exit 22* (northbound only), go straight after exiting the off-ramp. Travel north on Old Highway 91 (Main Street) approximately 2.3 miles through the Town of Leeds. Turn right on Babylon Road just past the sign for the Red Cliffs Recreation Area. Continue south on Babylon Road (900 N) until reaching the boundary of the NCA (fenced with large portal sign). Continue 2 miles to the Toquerville Mine Trailhead (horse trailers should park here). This road requires a high clearance vehicle and may require 4x4 wheel drive past the Toquerville Mine Trailhead (depending on sand and mud conditions). Continue south for 1.4 miles and turn left. Turn right after 0.1 miles into the trailhead.
*From I-15 Exit 23 (southbound only), turn left on Silver Reef Road at the end of the freeway off-ramp. Turn left onto Main Street and travel north for 2.3 miles through the Town of Leeds. Follow the directions above after reaching Leeds.
Description: This short trail is used to access a network of other trails within the Babylon area. It is a dirt two-track providing access to Arch Trail and Sandstone Mountain Trail. For those without 4WD, parking at the Sand Cove Trailhead is the best option. The road into Sand Cove Primitive Camping Area, although closer to Arch and Sandstone Mountain Trails, is often affected by floods.
