Description

The trail ascends very quickly offering nice views to the west across Wide Hollow Reservoir and to the east towards Escalante. After 0.3 miles the trail splits into a loop, keep right to follow the recommended direction. You'll encounter several magnificent pieces of petrified wood on the way.
