Great Hike, winds a lot! Terrain changes! Great views! LOTS of sand! If wet, plan on MUD! Dry plan on dust! Seems long but worth it when u get to the falls! Plan on staying at falls for awhile in summer-swim!

This is a very short trail, but it goes to an interesting phenomenon in the park. I read that the water that weeps from the wall started it's journey about 12,000 years ago. It has worked it's way down through the sandstone until it hits a layer it can not penetrate and so it comes out of the wall. There are some great views of Angels Landing and down the valley. Worth a quick detour.

Don't know how to rate this: as with so much of S Utah, it is BEAUTIFUL but is being loved to death!

This was a beautiful outlook spot! Really easy hike for my two and seven year old. A little steep but short. The color of the rocks when the sun was lower in the sky was gorgeous and the sun shone on the canyon that late so it wasn’t too cold of a hike. Seeing the water deep out of the rocks and shower down on us was fun and my kids loved it!

We hiked yesterday, 3-18-18. The gate was open, so we were able to park right at the trailhead. The pools are awesome!

One of my all time favorite hikes in Utah valley. Be careful at the fork because it is very easy to miss.

Pretty awesome drive...plenty of opportunities to get out and hike around. A lot of the land is BLM so you kinda have the ability to make a trail yourself. We scrambled up the cliff and it was awesome.

Super easy. Awesome hike with a great view at the end...although it was windy when we went so it got a little chilly up at the top.

The cave is awesome! Kids loved seeing lizards and birds.

Easy access to the trailhead. An easy trail with lots of shade and thick vegetation.

easy trail for sunday afternoon, bring your dogs 3 waste bags stations, no reason to leave anything behind

My first off road experience in my stock Jeep Wrangler JL unlimited. There’s some little sand dunes off to your left off the main trail - make sure you go do them!

Love this little hike

Easy trail almost 1.5 miles. The only challenge are the steps other than that.... beautiful scenery!

More popular for mountain bikers to do the loop. Initial assent to the wall offers great views. I recommend hiking in and back (about half the total distance). Would rate hike as moderate - not hard.

I walk this path for the small river fly fishing. Tons of river access all along the path.

Toughest part is the first half mile or so but it’s definitely worth it! Going at a leisurely pace it took my family and I about 3 hours to get to the petroglyphs and back.

Great hike all around! Definitely need good boots as the trail was completely covered in snow and it is a decent incline. Beautiful wooded landscape throughout and lightly trafficked. Close to Park City but you feel like you’re more remote!

I believe Escalante has some of the greatest adventure hikes out there, BUT I have had enough scary experiences in Escalante that I would STRONGLY advise that if you want to have the adventures here you NEED 4 things. 1. All Trails or a similar app with the downloaded map on your phone with a spare battery or a Garmin. 2. An external GPS for your phone (I have a global SAT for only $40). 3. Water shoes in your backpack. 4. A paper map as a backup. ( Also always drop a pin at your car.). Escalante is a wonderland, but the trails are not well marked and so it is crucial you do your homework about what you are heading into and go prepared.
To get to the hike you drive about 10 miles down Hole In The Rock Road until you see a cattle guard with a parking area on the right side of the road. This is the parking lot, and the trail is just across the road. After not very long on the trail the cliffs turn beautiful with cool wave patterns. They are beautiful. We headed to Zebra trail and did that trail first, and then headed right which I believe is South. You get to a fence. I was told we had to climb under it. We walked by a field of cool black balls that were facinating, and this is where my All Trail came in as a HUGE help. Not sure if we would have found it without my external GPS, and that downloaded map, but when we did find it, it was an obvious crack in the canyon that you are looking at from above. The decent into the canyon was steep, but if you go at it slowly and carefully it was not bad. The next challenge to deal with is the water. We went when it was only high 50's in temperature, so getting wet was something we had to be careful about. If it was a super hot day, I am sure it would have been just a nice cool down. Each time.we got to water, we put on our water shoes and quickly got through and then dried off our feet and got our warm shoes back on. The big landmark of this hike is that the trail narrows down into a narrow canyon about 2 feet wide that is about 30-40 feet long. It has rocks that have settled on top creating a tunnel. Most the time this tunnel is filled with water, so you have to get in the water to make it through. I stayed close to the cave wall, so it only came up to right under my bottom, but in the middle it was deeper. Very cool hike, but like most hikes in Escalante, GO PREPARED, for it is super easy to get lost. Here is my blog for a 360 stitch of the hike. Tunnel. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/360-adventure-tunnel-slot-canyon.html?m=1


We went about an hour and a half before sunset, and we had the falls all to ourselves when we got there. Long, but easy hike there and back. It got dark on our way back, and the view of the stars was spectacular. Not a light to be seen but the moon and stars. Would love to go back someday and camp. Beautiful sites right along the creek.

Great hike! did it by myself on a weekday and there;s nobody around. one star less because the central part that parallel with the bike trail is kinda boring. Very accessible slot canyon and so much diversity of rocks!

Beautiful trail! Mostly walking through wash and rocks. can get tricky in some areas, but fairly smooth going. went with my daughter and she enjoyed climbing while I was fine reading on a rock and watching... so definitely something for all skill levels.

My first offroad drive.
Both breathtaking and safe at the same time.
A Must go!

My husband and I hiked this trail on Saturday March 10. It was a sunny 50 degrees... we regretted not bringing sunscreen!

On the day we went, there was actually a race event going on, so for the first 15 minutes, we were cheering on runners as we passed them on the trail.

The initial ascent was moderate, but not too grueling, and the rest of the way was more level. We saw one herd of about 100 bison.... very cool to see. The views of the lake and the Wasatch Front were beautiful. We took the optional short side route to the beacon. Pretty neat to see, and good view up there. The backside of the trail was more tedious, with fewer spectacular views.

Trail has no shade, so be prepared! Overall a nice, unique hike!

Awesome hike! Nice gradual but quick uphill to begin the hike. Levels out to a nice high-desert alpine ridge. Take the extra 3/4 rainbow loop for a much more intimate look with the petrified forest, but be ready to get the blood pumping a little bit on the way back up.

After the 3/4 loop it can get confusing to get back to the main trail since everything starts looking like trails through the pines, but you'll eventually see the way back to the parking lot once you're on top of the ridge looking out into the reservoir!

Worth the $8.

Long walk to the start of the canyon. Very narrow.
A ways in we (2 of us), came to 1st obstacle which stopped the wife. I made it up past that, was stopped by the next obstacle.
Very good slot. I recommend doing both Zebra and Tunnel slots in the same walk.

Awesome!! A little bit more difficult than we were expecting but 100% worth it! We did this to break up a long day of driving from Santa Fe to Zion. Also it’s fun to say hoodoo.

It’s where I had a close encounter with a black bear. Awesome!

Hard but fun!
