This memorable trip is recommended only for experienced slickrock wanderers, for once you leave the road, you enter a landscape of Navajo Sandstone domes where a good feel for the lay of the land is necessary to stay on course. Davis Gulch begins as an inconspicuous draw, and you begin on its left (west) side after leaving Hole-in-the-Rock Road, following a northeast course above its steadily deepening, narrow gorge. The roller-coaster route leads you up and over low domes, past deep water pockets, and into small sandy basins where you find a concentration of blackbrush, silvery sophora, sand sagebrush, yucca, Mormon tea, snakeweed, and wavy-leaf oak.
