“Burning,” “Carcass,” “Death”—the names alone alert visitors to the character of these wilderness study areas on the Kaiparowits Plateau. Water is scarce, and the vast landscape conceals dangers for both hikers and motorists. Dirt roads separate these WSAs from each other, but on the ground there’s no way to really tell when you leave one WSA and enter another. This trail guide includes descriptions of Trap Canyon, Left Hand Collet Canyon, and Tommy Smith Creek Canyon.
