    Andrew Davidson added Box Elder Peak

    Andrew Davidson reviewed Box Elder Peak Trail

    11 days ago

    Pros: Good views. Solitude. Flowers. Get to enjoy an 11k foot peak to yourself most likely.

    Cons: Hot and exposed to the sun with little to no shade. No reliable water sources. Relentlessly steep, particularly the last third.

    If you do it I suggest bringing 1 gallon of water per person. That's what I took and it was just about the perfect amount.

    4 months ago

    Pros. Solitude and some really nice scenery around Death Hollow and Mamie Creek. Lots of available camping options.

    Cons. Poor trail the closer you get to Escalante. Mile after mile of really bland scenery, sagebrush and junipers trees.

    Overall I doubt I will do this trail again.

    The scenery is 5 stars, one of the best hikes in the Uintas. The trail on the other hand is pretty awful. It's not a difficult trail, moderately long with a gentle incline the whole way, but it's more difficult than the stats lead you to believe. The trail is constantly disappearing, often instead of skirting around the boggy marshes the trail will head straight into them, where it then disappears for a quarter mile. If you are lucky you will find it on the other end of the marsh at which point it will lead you straight into another marsh. There are many river crossings as well with no bridges, but instead of river crossing that would help divert you onto higher or drier land these river crossing have the sole purpose of leading you through the maximum amount of marshland possible. Eventually you realize the futility of trying to keep your feet dry and just embrace it. Weather you spend 30 minutes carefully picking your way across the marsh, or walk straight through it in 10 minutes, either way your feet are going to get wet. I say all this not to discourage, but simply to let you know the trail takes longer and is more difficult than you might be led to believe, but yes, I would and will definitely do it again.

    Dry Canyon is not my favorite trail. For the first 3/4 of the hike it is not very scenic, just steep with little reward. Eventually you do break out of the trees and the views become quite good. The summit of Big Baldy is nice. That said if I were to summit this peak again I would take the approach up the Battle Creek Trail, where there is water and better views, albeit a few more miles.
