Beginning at scenic Egypt trail head, this route is pretty neat. We'll start off with a nice overland section high above the Escalante River with wide views of the area. Then it is to and across the river to Silver Falls Canyon. Up the canyon we'll go passing many historical engravings on the sandstone canyon walls. Nearing the top of the canyon we'll swing around to Chop rock Canyon while viewing a large portion of the Circle Cliffs from high above the desert floor.
As we head down Chop rock Canyon, the walls grow higher and closer together, several interesting side canyons will demand exploring and the main canyon narrows to just a couple of feet in width! Then it is back to the Escalante River, up Fence Canyon and back up the old trail with steps cut into the steep slick rock to the top of the Egypt escarpment. There will be plenty of time to enjoy sunsets, read, draw, photograph, eat good food and relax. Difficultly of the trip - hard.
