Hiked this on 5/2/2007 -- I turned this into a 13.7 (according to the GPS breadcrumbs) mile solo day hike by parking on the side of the road near the Campground, ascending to Cohab Canyon, taking both overlooks (and got some GORGEOUS photos!) then taking the Frying Pan trail (extremely rugged terrain!) making a small detour for Cassidy arch (WOW!) and then up the Grand Wash (SPECTACULAR, yet spooky!), back along UT-24 to pick up the trail and loop back through to Cohab canyon and back down to the car. I used 6 liters of water, but I could have used 8, so bring more water than you think you need!
Hiked this trail on a recent trip from 10/4/01 to 10/13/01. This was the least crowded of the 5 parks we hit. Bryce, Zion, Canyonlands, Arches and Capital Reef. Canyonlands also offers several viewing areas of pictrographs. This was a fun hike and offered great views. This park is well worth a day or two. Additionally, in the town of Torry just west of the park was a great little take-out hamburger joint that was excellent.
