INFORMATION ABOUT HIKE

  • Fabulous Hike, just make sure there is no storm in the forecast. Don't go in if you are threatened with a bad storm. It has killed people.  I would just stop at the Ranger station on the way in, and check if they think it is safe. 
  • About 2.2 miles from one end to the other.  If you go out and back it would be 4.4 miles.
  • The hike is pretty flat, so it is easy for anyone. Level 1 Hike
  • There is something amazing about hiking alongside such massive cliff walls.  It definitely should be a bucket list must for people for it is incredible.  
  • About 4 hours south of SLC

Walking through Grand Wash is best done in the morning when it is cool, for the heat can bare down on you later in the day.  It is a hike that is best done at a leisurely pace for there is so much to enjoy and you need time to look up and around.  Stopping in at the rangers station on the way in, is always a great idea, for they will let you know if there is any danger and if so what time you should make sure you are out.  They are full of information.

HOW TO FIND GRAND WASH TRAIL HEAD


From I-15 you take the US-50 Exit 188.  Follow US-50W to UT-24E.  You will come to the Ranger station, and it is on the right fork.  I would stop at the ranger station and pick up a free map for other great things here.

I knew I wanted to do a road trip to Capitol Reef this summer, and I found this blog created by a volunteer at Capitol Reef really informative and useful.  Check it out.  She is definitely a wealth of knowledge about this area, and her recommendations were fabulous!

Why do I want to paint this even though I am not a painter?  It intrigues me and looks like it should be on my wall.

This jagged edge on the top fascinated me.  Looks a little deadly and terrifying if your imagination ran away a little!  :)

GRANDSTAFF CANYON is similar in the huge cliff walls and walking in the canyon. If also has an Arch at the end, and a small stream in the middle you cross often.
