Death Hollow is a wonderfully narrow tributary canyon of the the Escalante River with a delightful clear running stream lined by a riparian forests. Flowing across slickrock, Mamie Creek has scoured plunge pools. Our route into the Escalante Canyon is not for the faint of heart and definitely not for those with fear of heights, dropping over 800’ in only a quarter mile. With white cliffs of the Navajo Sandstone towering nearly a thousand feet above the canyon floor, this is one of the deepest and most inviting of the Escalante Canyons, perhaps rivaling even Zion Canyon. River shoes are a requirement for this hike as we will be wading much of the time; you will also need shoes with sticky soles for the steep climb out of the canyon.
