The hike into this base camp is an easy one and the day hikes up and out of the canyon are challenging and involve elevation changes of about 800 feet, exposure and steep climbs. At least two of the day hikes are very demanding. There are limited easy hiking options on this trip.

These winding canyons are classic Glen Canyon. From above, a sea of orange slick rock domes conceals gorges hundreds of feet deep. Within these gorges, clear streams run over bedrock and pour into pools. Walls of the canyons overhang a stream lined with tall cottonwoods. In places, inner canyons of narrows twist between the massive larger walls.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet in Boulder, UT at 9 a.m. We provide a duffel bag for your gear (25 lbs. max.). The beautiful drive to the trail head is approximately 2 hours. Our hike to camp begins in a shallow wash that deepens into a narrows then into a huge canyon with a stream. We will view many pictograph panels ranging in age from at least 3000 BC to 1250 AD. (5 miles).

Day 2: Our day hike is downstream. The canyon continually changes eventually entering one of the nicest narrows in the Escalante Canyons. A climb out on the slick rock for a fantastic view is an option.

Day 3: We climb out of the canyon to the slick rock domes then down into another delightful, winding gorge that contains Anasazi ruins and petroglyphs. Pools of water, waterfalls and giant arches are a big part of this day hike.

Day 4: This day hike leads us to a giant arch in yet another gulch. The stream bed in this u-shaped canyon with hanging gardens and tight narrows leads us through water chutes and pools. We climb out a hidden Anasazi trail to get back to camp. This day is epic, beautiful, challenging and thrilling.

Day 5: We explore more alcoves and canyons on the way back to the trail head. Drive to Boulder, arrive 6 - 7 p.m. (dinner not included).
