Escalante Rim and Canyon

This hike provides incredible views of the Escalante Canyons as we follow the canyon rims looking at unusual rock formations such as Boz’s Crack. Walking mostly on slickrock, we take in the views as we traverse to a dry waterfall overlooking alcoves in the narrowest part of the Escalante Canyon. After eating lunch while soaking our feet in a delightful waterpocket with a view, we follow an historic trail down to the Escalante Canyon with its green ribbon of riparian forest. You will want to bring “river shoes” that you don’t mind getting wet because we cross the Escalante River a half dozen times and wade along particularly scenic stretches if it is a hot day. Following the canyon, we will see huge natural arch and natural bridge, ancient Indian ruins, and lots of rock art. This hike requires a shuttle – we will leave your car at the Escalante River trailhead.
