To Do Map

I’ve done this hike several times in the past year, and I absolutely love it. I always bring my dog with me and he seems to love it more than I do. The trail is rocky, but not too steep. The top is absolutely breathtaking.

Did this hike over the weekend ,it’s the second time, still as fun and beautiful as the first time. Usually there are other hikers but the trail is wide enough to pass, also the incline killed my husband, he hates hiking but honestly it’s really not that bad. Very easy in and out hike and something fun for the family or by yourself! I recommend it and think you’ll love it just as much as I do!

By far one of the best hikes I’ve ever been on. The views are unbelievable.

A few notes:

We spoke to a ranger in the cannonsville station to grab permits to camp near the Egypt trailhead. Told her we were going to the cathedral, through the fence canyon route. She suggested we took a different route, which only required 1 river crossing rather than 5.

Once we were at the trailhead we decided to go for the fence canyon route since we had a gps with it loaded on. Trail is tough, and navigation skills are necessary. Scope out the best spots to cross the river at each point. Was about thigh-waist high deep at its deepest point in early March.

After the 5th river crossing we were like screwwwww this, so we decided to go the route the ranger suggested to us on the way back.
Cross the river just south of the neon canyon entrance and walk directly away from the dome that signals the entrance of the canyon. After that, you’ll feel like you’re lost in the desert for an hour or so, but you’ll easily be able to locate the final ascent to the TH. Lots of ups and downs, but Definitely worth going this route over fence canyon if you aren’t feeling a bunch of river crossings.

Overall, 10/10 hike, 10/10 views, one hell of an adventure.

The trail is not that exciting but the ending view is breathtaking. Perfect trail to bring dogs and older children. Last year, we took our 5 and 8 year old boys. The well worn trail ends at the cliff but you can walk along the cliff to get different vantage points. It’s one of those unreal vistas that feel like you are standing in a painting. One of my favorites in Southern Utah for sure.

I wasn't able to complete this hike due to crossing the river (didn't have the right gear) however I will be back!!!

Absolutely gorgeous. Be prepared to run into water during the winter months. We came across knee deep water in Feb.

This is a great day/afternoon hike that offers an incredibly diverse view. We ended up doing this hike, per recommendation of a local, on our way out of page, AZ. Cottonwood canyon road is an easy dirt road that can take you close to the “head” of this trail. Note* there is know Trail sign that will let you know where to start. We parked at the junction of cotton wood canyon and the other dirt road/path that comes from the east. If you’ve driven up to hackleberry canyon trail, you can hike from there as well you just have to head south to get to the point where you hike up to yellow rock. If you can make your way to the base of the mountain (through river bed (maybe an inch of spotty water when we went in mid feb), you can kinda see a dirt-rock path that’s been carved out that heads straight up. It’s not scary (unless you’re afraid of heights) and this trail doesn’t have steep drop offs- id say its a fairly friendly trail. There is loose rock and dirt heading up/down from the creek bed so just be careful there, other than that it was easy and you really can’t miss yellow rock! It’s like exploring another planet. We did the trail in 2 hours, hiked up in less than 20/25 min and enjoyed our time on the rock. Saw some antelope and some mountain lion foot prints! Pretty cool!

The lake with the Lily pads is cute but not the actual lake lol. We spent some time there and were surprised how small it was, it kind of looked like the trail ended there. But go to the far end of that lake and you’ll see the trail continuing a ways to another lake. Cuberant lake is pretty big and I’m glad we noticed the trail and kept going!

Amazing hike, view is well worth it! Just make sure to wear some good shoes or hiking boots, the trail consists of some real rocky terrain

First hike in the Logan area, nice and easy one to start off with. Includes lots of great views and we even enjoyed a little picnic on the rocks next to the tranquil river. The view at the top is very beautiful 360 degrees around.

beautiful hike theough so many different mini ecosystems. went from red clay to bouldering to sand. great opportunities to climb megaliths for spectacular views. very clean trail.

What a view! Very pretty hike. It is calm and peaceful hiking out to the point. There are small to medium sized rocks the 1st mile and a half. And it is pretty sandy right near the end to the point. Love the view. Would do it again and would love to trial run. Would be super hot in the summer.

abandoned trail, trailhead near highway but not easy to locate

Do I need a 4WD or all wheel drive at all for Fortymile Ridge Road? I just want to get to the trailhead without getting stuck.

The first 1/2 to 3/4 mile of the trail, beginning on the west side, was very muddy. It made the trail slippery. After that, the trail was packed snow and very beautiful. Highly recommend micro spikes.

Great trail to take your dogs, but make sure they are on a leash when on top of the Overlook.

Our group loved this hike! We did think it should be rated moderate though, because the large rocks in the first mile were difficult for a couple older people in our group. The incline is easy, but the actual pathway is often moderate. The view at the top is incredible!

Wanted to ditch the crowds today and it worked on this trail! We didn't go too far but we had our 5 yo and it was perfect for us. Lots of beautiful scenery and plenty of exploring to do and scrambling around on the slick rock. We were here in good weather in January - I imagine it gets real hot in summer but once you get down towards more of the narrow sections it's probably a lot cooler. Just lots of exploring to do here - I look forward to coming back and making it further down the gulch.

Way to many people at all times

easy trail

This recording is actually for Wire Pass, but somehow I couldn't load that map for this recording. I am not sure if or how I can change it to Wire Pass. We did not go to the overlook. Keep in mind that inside Wire Pass (after the turn off for Buckskin Overlook), there is an 8 foot drop that is a challenge. This can be by passed by going up on top of the canyon. Both ways can be a bit tricky if you're not used to it.

I loved this hike. Very rewarding, beautiful views along the way. Not hard. Very very green in the middle of the the summer. Great escape!

Started at the water tank "sneaker route" trailhead. only make it coyote natural bridge. Will come back and make it to cliff arch someday! There is usually a rope to descend but we were there during the winter and scaled the wall into and out of the canyon as there was no rope. Would not recommend this scramble unless you are able bodied and pretty confident. Rewarding views and solitude make this hike worth it!

Hiked mid December. No rain, temps from the mid 20s to low 50s and dry. Frozen streams easily crossed. Due to shorter daylight hours, impending snow storm and time exploring exquisite Junctions Ruins, we hiked only as far as the junction. Beautiful canyon. We’ll return to hike and explore further.

kinda the long way to do this - better to drop in at the trailhead via the crack, camp, come out at Jacob Hamlin (150' of rope recommended) - NO DOGS ALLOWED IN COYOTE (it's part of Glen Canyon)

yeah, you could do this. better to go to coyote trailhead, drop in via the crack, camp, come out at Jacob Hamlin Arch (150' of rope recommended) - NO DOGS ALLOWED IN COYOTE (it's part of Glen Canyon)

Did Buckskin to Lee's Ferry. Changed my life. After the first day of hiking, didn't see another human for 48 hours. It was unreal.
