With a name like Deadmans Trail, one might envision terrain that is fraught with gloom and despair. You will pass through some of Utah’s most remote and desolate backcountry on Deadmans Trail. The canyon itself is an inspiring sight after crossing seemingly unproductive land. A spring-fed creek nourishes desert flowers, succulent grasses, and tenacious sage. Magnificent cottonwoods shade the canyon floor, and sheer sandstone walls glow with brilliant radiance. However, Horseshoe Canyon is more than a precious sanctuary amidst an arid wilderness.
