Update to the Hayduke Trail Reference: This is the second/northern option that I present to Hayduke Hikers looking for an alternate to connect the Burr Trail Switchbacks (HDT Section 6 Start) to Escalante. If you haven’t already, read the pros/cons for skipping this part of official Hayduke and get the… Continue reading
Lower Muley Twist is a spectacular canyon in Capitol Reef just south of where the Burr Trail Road cuts through the mid-section of the park. Supposedly the name originates from pioneers claiming the canyon could “twist a mule” with its many meanders. Lower Muley Twist is known for its amazing… Continue reading
Hamburger Rocks is an interesting unmarked geological formation along the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park. It’s an interesting site, but probably not worth the effort as an 11-mile day-hike from the trailhead at The Post. But, if doing a longer over-night trip through Lower Muley Twist, or possibly… Continue reading
– part of the Hayduke Reference – The Hayduke Trail crosses and then descends Tarantula Mesa as it connects the Henry Mountains to Capitol Reef (Section 5). The route across the top of the mesa is very straightforward as it follows a dirt road passing two waterworks systems along the… Continue reading
Spring 2016 definitely didn’t turn out like I imagined. After months of planning, I scrapped my “Bryce to Canyonlands” itinerary due to a lingering ankle injury as well as schedule complications. Then more logistical conflicts doomed plan B as well. After Plan C seemed less than ideal, I ended up… Continue reading
The video of my 9-day, 153-mile loop hike around the Burr Trail in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Capitol Reef National Park. The windy/cold May 2016 trek through the land of slot canyons and wide-open vistas features Big Horn Canyon, Zebra Slot, Harris Wash, Choprock Canyon, Lower Muley Twist, Upper… Continue reading
This weekend’s episode of Rock the Park focuses on Capitol Reef National Park (check local listings on ABC). AND… I’m excited to say it features a short video clip of mine from last year’s big hike when I encountered a flash flood in the park. Set those DVRs and catch… Continue reading
Stevens Canyon is a classic Escalante drainage which remains relatively infrequently visited thanks to its remote location. With no major obstacles, Stevens makes for a great backpacking destination. Combined with the historical Baker Route, it makes for a great “connector” for longer hikes and is becoming a popular alternate for… Continue reading
This interesting toadstool/hoodoo/balanced rock lives in a remote section of desert below Tarantula Mesa west of the Henry Mountains and east of Capitol Reef National Park. As far as I know the rock formation doesn’t have an official name, thus I’ve referred to it by its location near upper Muley… Continue reading
