    I would agree with person who said not sure if end destination rates a 5. Definitely do it with a GPS. Most people make it round trip 6 to 8 hours, a few who know where they're going might do it 4 to 5. It was quicker for us on way back because we knew better where we were going. The Escalante River crossings were somewhat confusing and winding our way through the tamerisk and river reeds was a challenge at some points. The end reminded me a bit of a larger calf creek falls perhaps without the water flowing, but the dome of the rock formation was pretty cool. We were so concerned about making sure we did not take too long to get back to our car at a reasonable hour--took us longer to get there than we thought--that we didn't feel we had the time to stay and take it in. BE SURE to bring 100 oz of hydration or a bit more. In summer I'd bring even more than that. Can't imagine doing this hike in 90/95+ temps. I'd worry about bringing enough hydration. October was great. Not sure we would have found it without GPS, or perhaps would have take us longer and then water would have been even more important.

    I would rate this as difficult just because of the climb back up to the rim in hot weather. Great trail; took us a bit to find the water at Roaring Springs, someone yelled at us and we turned a hard right and walked further down to the bathroom area.

    Short steep trail (not bad), which goes to covered wagon bridge. It's not spectacular and you can walk under and on top of it. What's was cool was: Keep walking around the trail from the bridge, say 50 to 75 yds (on level ground) and there is a very cool subway carved alcove that's perhaps 100" around (it's a half circle that makes it seem like a large cave--it's not dark or anything). Kids would love it. No one for miles around when we went there.

    m mueller reviewed Water Canyon Trail

    about 1 year ago

    This was just over a 7 mi hike and despite its name is not a canyon, but rather up a steep ridge, through very nice ponderosa pine with some nice high views in some spots. It starts out slowly in elevation gain but is quite steep in some places in short spurts. Overall about 2400' gain and ends at an ATV trail--it basically connects a dirt road (that you drive to trail head on) to the ATV trail at top of mountain. No particular landmarks or things to see; so if you would like a moderately strenuous forest hike it's nice. However, given the area you're in, there are many other hikes which focus on the region's unique geology, but not this one.
