We did this as a day hike, and didn't hike the entire length of the wash to the Escalante River. The first two miles of this hike, until you reach the fence separating the grazing cattle from the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, are very unpleasant, since you are walking through a heavily grazed area that is rife with cattle droppings and tracks in and around the wash. The remainder of the hike is quite pleasant, but if you are doing an out-and-back you will get to experience the cattle again upon your return to your vehicle, which puts a damper on what might have been a pleasant day or more hike.
