I put together 4 loop hikes in Escalante area based on the books by Steve Allen Canyoneering 3-Loop hikes in Utah’s Escalante and Canyoneering 2. Also some research of trails using Michael Kelsey’s books on Slot canyon guide to Colorado plateau and non-technical canyon hiking guides. Anyone out there interested in joining me on any of these adventures between Oct 14 and 21st? (Got to be back to Portland Oct 22) If so, which one and why? Cheers David 503 654 2070 Of the many choices offered, I have narrowed it down to 4 1. Stevens and Coyote Canyon loop: 53 miles Physically demanding, route finding and class 5.2 climbing 7 day loop 80 ft. rope 7 ml Water wading, dry sections (min carry capacity of 2 gallons) More info: http://www.acrossutah.com/wordpress/stevens-canyon-and-the-baker-route/ Purple route at https://caltopo.com/m/F4KE 2. Death Hollow and Sands Canyon loop: 53 miles Class 5.4 climbing with little exposure. Lots of wading and swimming. Excellent physical condition. Wet suit and inner tube to carry gear recommended on longer stretches of swimming 40 ft. rope needed Blue route at https://caltopo.com/m/F4KE More info: https://backcountrypost.com/trail-guides/death-hollow.78/ 3. Little Death Hollow and Wolverine canyons 36 miles 3-4 day loop Class 5 climbing with exposure Wadding shoes recommended Green route at https://caltopo.com/m/F4KE More info: https://backcountrypost.com/threads/little-death-hollow-wolverine-loop.698/ 4. Peek a boo and Spooky canyons 1-2 day loop 10-22 miles 40 ft. rope, class 5.0 climbing Could probably be combined with Stevens and Coyote canyon loop. Red route at https://caltopo.com/m/F4KE More info: http://www.brycecanyoncountry.com/the-grand-staircase-slot-canyons-peek-a-boo-and-spooky-gulch/ Probably the most technically challenging and interesting one with a variety of travel is the Death Hollow and Sands Canyon thrash.
