Nice short hike close to Kanab. There are a lot of ATV trails going off in all directions, and I was glad I had the map pulled up on the AllTrails app. GoogleMaps brought me to a small parking area right where Rt 106Q intersects with 106 near where 106 intersects with Hwy 89. There was a barbwire fence with a gate you could open and then I just walked straight up 106Q. It is sandy, and it is uphill, but really not that hard. I didn't climb around much once 106Q ended. About halfway up 106Q there is a .2 mile spur (I think it is 106R) that runs up to the base of the butte. You could for sure climb up quite a ways on the rocks there, not that I am recommending it.

On the way up, you are looking at the colorful butte, and on the way down you are looking at a panoramic landscape that goes on forever. It may not be the most spectacular scenery in the area, but it's still excellent.
