Backpacking Reflection Canyon is an intense, challenging hike that takes you through slot canyons, climbing up and down shifty sandstones and traversing rugged terrains and ravines. With that said, you'll be blessed with a view like no other of Reflection Canyon found at the end of the hike. Offline map is recommended. Users have reported that the trails are not marked well.

One of the many canyons in the Grand Staircase/Glen Canyon National Recreation areas. This out and back hike takes you from the plateau down into the gulch where the water level gets a little deeper as you go, never really more than knee deep outside of rainy weather. Secure a back country overnight permit from the visitor's center in Escalante. Start out at the red well trailhead located off the Hole in the Rock road. Hike down into the gulch and follow for miles passing Jacob Hamblin Arch, Indian Petroglyphs, & Natural Bridge. Plenty of Campsites along the way to choose from.Show more
