We visited Malad Gorge in July. It is beautiful with trails around the gorge. There isn’t much cover on the trail so bring a hat and some sunscreen. Some amazing photo opportunities. There are multiple stops so don’t forget to check the map they provide...More

This is something to see. Great State park. You can see the Devil's wash bowl and parts of the Gorge. It's very well taken care of and has a really nice park for stopping and shading up. I enjoyed seeing what it had to offer.

This gorge is partially visible from the freeway as you speed by. But, take a few minutes and exit the freeway to really see this "hidden" treasure of a gorge. There is a pedestrian bridge (almost right below the interstate bridge) that allows you to...More

Malad Gorge is right of the Interstate. The Malad River is one of if not the shortest rivers in the US. It worth seeing it, the Devil's Washbowl, and the part itself.

This is a nice place to stop and see the Malad Gorge. There is a small entrance fee ($5) station at the gate. It is on the honor system but worth contributing to the park. There are a few views to drive around and see....More

This is a beautiful, desolate driving loop of the gorge. Pay at the front gate and get a map. There are five or six stops to get out, walk around, take pictures. Enjoy!

One of the top places I take visitors from out of state. The gorge and the rocky cliffs make for a photogenic surprise. It's easily accessible, right off the highway. In fact, if you didn't know it was there, you'd miss it. You even drive...More

Great quick stop along the journey. The gorge is magnificent. Be careful hiking along the sheer walls.
