This popular 3½ mile loop consists of the Chuckwalla Trail, Turtle Wall, Paradise Rim, and Halfway Wash trails.
Chuckwalla Climbing Wall
When you first enter the trailhead, you will see the Chuckwalla climbing wall, which is a popular rock-climbing destination for locals. You can’t miss it, and it’s pretty cool to see the rock climbers that frequent there!
How to get there
The Chuckwalla trail is accessed directly from the Chuckwalla trailhead off of State Route 18, north of Snow Canyon Parkway.
The Chuckwalla trail serves as a major connector to the Turtle Wall, Beck Hill, Halfway Wash, and Paradise Rim trails in Paradise Canyon and as an initial route to reach the Gila and Scout Cave trails from the south. In other words, you can find numerous hikes that start at the same trailhead.
Chuckwalla Trail: 1.7 miles, Halfway Wash: 3 miles, Paradise Rim: 3.6 miles, and Turtle wall: about 3.8 miles roundtrip.
Easily follow the main trail, this will take you to Turtle Wall.
