This is a super fun, quick hike. Great for kids and dogs. The trail is pretty well marked, but once you get into the trail a little it breaks of in many directions so it made it confusing. Maybe they all end up there, not really sure. But what was supposed to be a super quick hike, took longer than expected because I didn't know which trail to take. Still, gorgeous at the top, and I will make this a regular.

Regardless of where you end up, it's a gorgeous area.

Mountain bikers would love it!

Park in the parking lot, and walk up the road by the camp hosts. Can't miss the trail head.

I've been up this trail a few times with scout groups and my young family. I absolutely love the thick groves of oak enveloping much of the trail. The lower portion is shaded much of the day, and there is always a breeze at the upper part of the trail which helps keep you cool.

There's actually a couple different routes you can take, including a poorly maintained service road that my boy loves for the steep hike and climbing it provides. I like to park at the pavilion above the reservoir (in the campground area) and walk the short way to the end of the road where the trail begins.

Overall a good workout and doable for even the younger kids if you stick to the main route. Bring lots of water, and enjoy the great valley views at the top. Do a little research on the history of The Escalante Cross which marks the top, so you'll look brilliant to the kids when they ask about it!

It's a very short hike that you can even start right up at the reservoir, but the final ascent to the cross is quite steep. I had to cross off the trail so that my shoes had something to grab onto. You are rewarded with some spectacular views of the valley.
