My track was above the canyons of Fifty Mile Creek and Willow Gulch. Not in the actual canyon. Based on zero footprints and documentation on the internet there will be a lot of peace and solitude on this trek. The rivers below are probably not accessible but I didn't search for a way. The track I took and recorded goes to a Lake Powell / Escalante River overlook for some incredible photography opportunities. I have rated this 5 because of the payoff at the destination. The hike itself is difficult and somewhat scenic as you zig-zag through the sandstone hills (looked like petrified dunes to me). Backpacking at it's best. The very end of the trail is where I camped. There was water available in various depressions in the sandstone throughout the hike so a filter will come in handy. Not sure at what times of year they contain water though. Enjoy.
