Hurricane is a city in Washington County, Utah, United States. The city is part of the St. George metropolitan area and is located on the Virgin River.

Hurricane was first settled in 1896 and got its name after a whirlwind blew off the top of a buggy Erastus Snow was riding in. Snow decided to name the place Hurricane. The community was settled as part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint President Brigham Young’s “Cotton Mission” to open up southern Utah for agricultural purposes. The town once operated a large peach and apricot orchard for the church and was known for growing peaches, pecans, and pistachios on small farms.

For about 80 years, the Hurricane Channel was the lifeblood of Hurricane Valley. It was built over a period of 11 years (1893-1904), mostly with pick and shovel. The canal has been dry since 1985. In 2000, interest groups banded together to preserve the canal. They received grants and volunteered to build a trail to commemorate the early settlers who worked to make the canal a reality.
