    Can't believe this trail wasn't already on alltrails.com. We started at Lipan point and hiked Tanner Tail to Tanner Rapids where we had our first camp. From there we had a very short day to our second camp at Cardenas Creek. If I were to do it again I would have camped at Escalante Creek on day two. From Cardenas Creek we made the route to Hance Rapids for camp three. This day was awesome and is what the Escalante Route is all about. The area before Escalante Creek is described as being a 4'-6' trail with an extreme exposure. Many make a great deal about this section. While the exposure is there the trail is comfortable hiking. One would have to make a stupid mistake to fall, however a fall would be fatal. I lost sleep the night prior thinking about it and once hiking this section was mad at myself for worrying. 75 mile Creek is a real treat and may be one of the top highlights of the trek. At the mouth of 75 mail Creek we took the high route to Papago Creek. The first cairn is at the mouth of the canyon. The high route is well marked and easy to follow to Papago. The Papago Wall was a treat and was a pleasant scramble from ledge to ledge. The Papago Slide was what i would consider the most technical portion of the hike but was not difficult. After the slide the relatively flat trail along the river to Hance Rapids was a nice way to cap the day before hiking at one of the excellent camps at Hance Rapids. On day four we followed the Tonto trail to Hance Creek. The campsite at Hance Creek was beautiful and was shaded by a very large tree. On the final day we made the trek up Tonto to its intersection with Grandview. Then followed Grandview to the top and our vehicle. The entire trail was easy to follow and well cairned but definitely difficult. I do not hike many trails more than once but would spring at the opportunity to enjoy this trek again.

    The Tonto trail is much longer then the 17.4 miles listed above. We hike a relatively small portion between New Hance and Grandview. I can't speak for the rest of the tail but this section was great. The area where the trail crossed Hance Creek makes a beautiful place to camp.

    We only hiked a small portion of the Grandview on our was out from Hance Creek on the Tonto. The trail was very nice and well maintained.
