Trail Description:

The Enepitsi Trail is an old pioneer road along the Santa Clara River. As you walk between the banks of river and the cliffs of Land Hill, keep a sharp eye out for prehistoric petroglyphs and pioneer graffiti. Please do not venture beyond the 2-track trail as this is private property.


The Enepitsi Trail is accessible by connecting a series of short trails:

The Enepitsi Trail is part of the Santa Clara River Reserve. The reserve protects open space, archaeological and natural resources, and recreational opportunities important to local communities. Contained within the reserve is the Land Hill Heritage Site part of the Santa Clara/Land Hill Area of Critical Environment Concern, which contains numerous prehistoric sites and vital riparian habitat.

The Shivwits Band of Southern Paiute continue to make the banks of the Santa Clara their homeland. Enepitsi (pronounced e’noo petes) means “ghost” in the Southern Paiute language.


*Note: Reaching the Enepitsi Trail may be confusing, especially for locals used to parking up the road past the Tukupetsi Trailhead. To protect archaeological sites, and promote a “good neighbor” policy, please follow the recommended access route to Enepitsi Trail.
