  • 90. A-Backcountry: Little Emigration Canyon Trail – Look For

    Breastworks can be seen on the bench above the footbridge.
    This narrow canyon was fortified for defense. Cross the footbridge and follow the trail to the mouth of Little Emigration Canyon. Mormon breastworks are visible on bluffs overlooking both sides of the creek. Visitors may hike up and explore the fortifications. Please tread lightly and protect these historic features, which are unique within the Utah State Parks system.
