“An iconic canyon in Capitol Reef treating visitors with easy running under towering sandstone walls”— Hunter R
Starting from the junction with the Chimney Rock Trail, head down the primitive path to the wash below. Follow the wash for roughly a mile before reaching a signed junction with Spring Canyon and the trail's end. Those wishing to return to their car at the Chimney Rock Trail Parking Area can simply return the way they came. For those who wish to extend their journey, see Lower Spring Canyon.
