Cohab Canyon Trail is a 3.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Torrey, UT that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking, walking, camping, and nature trips.
A hidden canyon with spur trails and overlooks. Strenuous climb of 320 feet from west to east up 1/4 mile switchback, then moderate. More gradual climb of 440 from east to west.
our intro hike to capitol reef! not difficult, cool short slot canyons and views of the beautiful fall trees & area around Fruita!
Great Narrow canyon trail displaying unusual intense pocketing of cliff walls. Opportunities for slot canyon exploration. We hiked from the Giffords end to the intersection of the Frying Pan Trail and back About 2 hours and very worthwhile. Steep quarter mile of switchbacks at beginning give way to gentle hiking the rest of the way.
Very pretty hike, not difficult with tons of diverse landscape. Wonderful earlier in the morning as shade is provided. Great for kids.

Loved it. Would do it again
There are a few short slot canyons, called "The Wives", that branch off the trail, and the overlooks give good views of the orchards and the petroglyphs area.
Great hike and beautiful views. If you aren't staying at the campground, parking may be an issue on the west trailhead. Park further up the road a the picnic area, or go to the north trailhead and part at the hickman bridge trailhead. Again, beautiful hike and if you have time continue on to Frying Pan and head out all the way to Cassidy Arch (about 4-4.5 hours roundtrip). You won't regret it.
Started west to east from the campgrounds. It's a steep climb with a lot of switchback the first 1/4 mile. Then after reaching a "Pass" drops down to Highway 24. Missed the trail sign for the overlooks just before a climb to the Frying Pan junction. After reaching highway 24 I returned back making this a loop. Then I found the overlook trail sign. The north overlook is the shorter of the two overlook trails and the easiest to follow. The South Overlook trail is easy follow for a while then you have to be careful picking out the rock cairns.
