This is a backcountry trail listing, so it is not for a day trip and does not have a trailhead you can drive to. This is in a remote section of Canyonlands. Getting from upper Spanish Bottom to the beginning of the trail might take a little bit of a bushwhack. The trail itself is a steep set of switchbacks that claim 1,300 feet in one mile. There is a lot of exposure to sun and drop-offs, so this trail isn't for the squeamish. But then, if you're at Spanish Bottom, you've probably already canoed or kayaked a long section of the Colorado or Green rivers and are up for anything!

Great place to really get away from it all. I had the fortune to travel here with a 4x4 crew and spent to weekend taking pics and having an awesome time. Views are incredible.

It was great to do as the sun was rising. We did it July 5th from Brown Betty to Spanish Bottom and up to the Dollhouse.

When I hiked this, my wife and I were the only people on the trail.
