Gould’s Rim Trail
Gould’s Rim Trail is an out-and-back trek that is commonly combined with the JEM trail and the Hurricane Rim Trail. Combining all three trails results in a 20+ mile loop. Gould’s Rim is a gradual climb up with a fun and exciting downhill ending overlooking Zion National Park and the surrounding landscape.
