Utah's Incredible Backcountry Trails

I gave this trail a five due to the challenges it presents with the water fording and trail seaching, plus the all wheel drive road that leads you to Egypt.
Ok everyone please read this! The information provided in this Trail Guide is not accurate!
First, thing is you need to follow the stacks of rocks (man-made) this is your trail and then look for foot prints. The biggest error in this print is that you have to cross the river a total of four times. And then turn left into the slot canyon. The sand dune that is discribed is heavily vegetated. There is a trail but you can miss it because the cow trail continues past the turn.
But my family and I were able to complete this in one day. Even with the time lost due to the wrong directions. We were able to get back in the dark using our high powered flash lights and head lamps. And oh yeah my Hound Dog sniffed the trail out to the "T". My 6 and 9 year old did this 11 mile hike in one day and loved the I spy game of finding the pile of rocks.
