  • This was a great hike!! A bit of a slog through the sand (and it is more like 4 miles than 3.1 as advertised) but totally worth it. Amazing views of the canyon walls, with different colors, sheer...  more »
  • A 3 mile hike to a beautiful waterfall. There is a pond at the bottom of the falls which you can enter. The water is quite cold. An easy hike and a great place to picnic by the falls. Well worth.....  more »
  • This was our first hike since arriving in Escalante UT. It did not disappoint. If you are just driving through or spending the night you can accomplish this 6 mile hike (3 mile out and back) in less than 4.5 hours. The payoff is Worth It! Do it! It is a fairly sandy hike so choose appropriate foot gear. There will be sunny and shady sections of the trail. Do take plenty of water (3 liters per person). Do use sunscreen. Do wear a broad brim hat. Do take a camera. Do wear a bathing suit. You will want to get in that pool! You will remember this little jaunt for a long time.
  • Very awesome hike, everyone I talked to said it was extremely difficult I felt like it was as easy as walking down the street. Pretty flat trail the whole time. A couple of sandy spots in the beginning. Scenery was magnificent the entire trail and the falls at the end are beautiful. Also be on the lookout because you can spot Native American petroglyphs along the Canyon walls. would recommend early morning start or evening and bring enough water.
