Note: Coyote Gulch is a harder trek, so we will do it some o Details • What we'll do This is a casual, scenic trip by Escalante, UT, visiting the some of the most scenic landmarks that this area has to offer! I want to be clear that this is NOT a hiking weekend, but we will be doing some hiking. This is perfect if your goal is to discover new places, or just want to leave the office behind and want to enjoy time outdoors. The weather forecast is high 70’s and 80’s in the daytime and nights are in the 40’s or 50’s. So we can cool off while there. While hiking will be involved, it will be casual, and nothing advanced or too difficult (we will save the harder events for some other time). I will drive up Thursday leaving around 7-8 AM to secure our campsite. You can camp or grab a hotel. This will be your choice! If you stay at one of the hotels, you can meet us Saturday morning at an area to be designated (once I am up there). If you have the time, and want to drive up on Wednesday, please contact me so we can car pool or caravan. As we usually do, once up there, I will post the directions to the campsite, and list any campsite number. I will also be flying the red “KEEP EXPLORING” flag to help you find us. For those staying at a hotel, we will meet in the morning around/after 9.30 am (casual start), at the designated place. Depending on how much time each side trip takes and how early we start will determine what we will get to see. Some of the places of interest: • Calf Creek Falls, Lower. Calf Creek Falls is one of the most enchanting areas of the Grand Staircase-Escalante area, a verdant oasis amid tumbled stone monoliths. ... • Zebra Slot Canyon (I love slot canyons) • Devils Garden. ... • Spooky Gulch. ... • Peak a Boo Slot Canyon We'll have lunch somewhere along the way each day. Questions? Contact me on PM or text[masked] • What to bring For the day-hikes: bring snacks, lunch, sun protection, headlamp, electrolytes and 3 liters of water on your on each hike. A Camelbak is the most practical solution. If you are camping: tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, 1-2 dinners (Friday night you can load up on your way), 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, + snacks. All your water for 2 days and 2 nights. Cleaning stuff, cooking stuff, firewood if you have space. Cash for the Buckskin permit. Weather looks high 70s / low 50s. • Important to know If you are camping, I would strongly recommend an SUV or something more capable for dirt roads than a passenger car. General Information: 1. Permits are free but the group size is limited to 12 people - there are more the 12 interested in going, we can get two permits and split into two groups. 2. Please bring some wag bags (plastic bags and toilet paper) as some place will not allow you to dig a hole in the ground... 3. This is a long weekend so please bring enough water if you are camping. I would recommend at least one gallon a day, plus additional water for hiking and helping to put out the campfires. 4. Campfires are allowed inside of the designated fire areas, so please bring firewood. 5. No water or trash pick=up – so for garbage – pack it in, pack it out. 6. I will bring a large camp stove and smaller grill. Feel free to bring those small green propane bottles so we do not run out. 7. Bring normal equipment: a. Bring Water Shoes b. Bring snacks, c. Sun protection, d. Headlamp e. 3 liters of water on your on each hike, f. Hat g. Hiking gear h. Camera i. And please do not forget BOTH your sense of adventure AND sense of humor!!

What we're about

The Hiking Hikers Hiking Group (“3H”) is an outdoor activities group, that seeks, through its members and member volunteers, to provide a supportive, nurturing environment for people to enjoy and explore the outdoors; increase awareness of and protect beautiful wild places; and promote physical conditioning and encourage personal growth.

The 3H encourages its members, comprised of singles, committed couples and married couples from the early twenties to the late sixties and beyond, to be well-prepared for each event attended by taking personal responsibility for their own safety and educating themselves on the skills and knowledge needed to be safe in the many places near and far that this group visits.

Education, common sense, respect for others and the willingness to help, by all of us, provides a fun, safe, and positive experience for everyone.
