The Yellow Knolls trail winds through a beautiful valley below a series of uplifted yellow rock domes from whence it gets its name. The initial stretch of trail heads through a wide-open field on a narrow track alternating between packed dirt and sand sections.
Then, the trail "descends into a valley and curves around this first mountain, taking you out onto the yellow stone, where you can explore the open rock landscape," writes Lana Law on [PlanetWare.com](https://www.planetware.com/utah/top-rated-hikes-near-st-george-utah-us-ut-59.htm).
"This is the highlight of the hike, but the trail continues on, ascending to a high point for a view over the surrounding hills and rock formations," she continues. During the spring, this area is a popular spot for viewing desert wildflowers.
If you come to view the flowers, be sure to take only pictures and leave only footprints.
