Constellation Trails

We're like the energizer bunny, we just keep going and going... after the Sharlot Hall Museum, we had energy for a 3rd hike of the day so we headed to the Constellation Trails!

The Constellation Trails in the Granite Dells are a series of well maintained trails near SR89. Parking can be found at the dirt lot below the Phippen Museum.

Head down the sandy path towards the tunnel and head through under SR89. Trailheads and a map can be found just a short distance away from the other side of the tunnel.

There are about a series of 10 trails connecting with one another. We decided to traverse along the outside and see where that took us: Ranch Road Shortcut to Rock Wall Trail to Lost Wall Trail then shortcut through Ham & Cheese Trail because that sounded yummy to me.

Like the Flume Canyon to Watson Lake Dam Trail, there are white dots to help guide you along.
