Belly of the Dragon! A Very Cool and Easy Thing to Do! Kanab, Utah

Published on January 11, 2019 by sherene@mystarvr.com

Beneath the highway is a hidden Dragon. Well, at least the Belly Of The Dragon!

A great place to bring your kids and get that "cave exploring feeling" even though the Belly is more of a tunnel. It is just long enough you may want a flashlight in the very center before you can see the light from the other side.

Easy to get to, just off the road. The Belly of the Dragon is 16 miles north of Kanab on Highway 89. As you start coming down the big hill into Mt Carmel Junction, (traveling north from Kanab), you'll see a well-maintained dirt road on the left at the bottom of the hill, known as Barracks road. (This is about 1/2 mile before you reach Mt. Carmel junction.) Make a sharp left after the guardrail, go 1/4 mile up that dirt road and the entrance is on the left.
There are plenty of places to park. The cave faces west, so lighting is best in the early afternoon. There is a little bit of a scramble to enter into the opening but nothing to strenuous.

You can continue on a short hike on the far side of The Belly up a sandy wash. Depending on the time of year there may be a small waterfall there.

A fun and easy place to stop for great photos!
