Utah's Incredible Backcountry Trails

You must obtain a permit from the Kane Gulch ranger station 5 miles prior to the trail head to camp overnight in these canyons.
This is a moderate hike with the drop into and the climb out of these canyons being strenuous. I would recommend walking the 1.7 miles to the drop in point at the top of Fish Creek canyon and using a rope to lower your pack 10 feet down then carefully follow the cairns to make your way down to the canyon floor. There are many places to camp in both canyons but most of the water seems to be towards the top of both canyons in October. Bring binoculars if you want to see the bulk of the cliff dwelling ruins or wall art.
Although the trip can be done with only 2 nights in the canyon I would recommend 3 nights if you really want to explore the canyon. Map skills are also important for this trip as the trail can be a bit questionable at times.
