This hike has some magnificent views of the Colorado River and the Book Cliffs. The hike is a lollipop, the left (eastern) side of the sucker has the great views but the right side has a more gradual ascent to the mesa top.

Devil’s Canyon is a system of trails around the canyon of the same name. My intention was to take D3 which goes up the canyon itself but the signing for D3 is poor and I first took a deviation on D1. Access to all the ‘D’ trails is at the parking lot for the D1 trailhead, D3 forks off to the left…

This was a hike to cache water for a cross country hiker coming through later in the week on the American Discovery Trail, which uses the Kokopelli Trail in this area. The Troy Built appears to be more used by bicycles than hikers.

A Snowy Final Visit to Johnson for the Year
Winter came a little early to Johnson Reservoir. The impending storm created a moody quiet environment, eerily silent.

Leprechaun Canyon is one of the most accessible narrow slots around being right next to highway 95 near Lake Powell. Its remoteness however means that it is rarely crowded. The canyon entrance is a wash where you push past some tall reeds then duck under a tunnel. After that there is a grand…

Janet’s Birthday Hike 2018
For her birthday this year Janet chose a familiar favourite in Spring Creek, we hoped the trees in the canyon would be changing colour and though some were most were still green.

A short nature walk about man’s relationship with the forest, unfortunately there are numbered stops along the way but no guide to the numbers. The canyon itself is barely visible from the walk and hard to access due to thick brush. Really not worthwhile.
