trail as shown is just the first leg of what's generally done as a one or two overnight with car shuttle, starting by parking near the Boulder Airstrip, hiking cross country to Death Hollow, then hiking down to the Escalante River, back to UT12, and shuttling back to the trailhead

trailhead can be somewhat difficult to find - go to 37°53'23.14"N 111°27'33.20"W near Boulder, off UT12 on the way to Hell's Backbone, turn onto the suspicious looking dirt road, pass the wrecked plane used as a marker http://www.panoramio.com/photo/7139466 and cross the airstrip (watch for incoming planes, almost non-existent) at 37°53'5.64"N 111°27'48.44"W, then continue to trailhead at 37°53'3.16"N 111°27'52.14"W

this trail is not for the faint of heart, and is widely known for poison ivy
