"Coyote Gulch is the most well-known, and well-used, canyon in the Escalante region—and for good reasons. Between the lower Escalante River and the Straight Cliffs, Coyote Gulch has carved a deep, serpentine gorge through the Navajo Sandstone, forming what is arguably one of the most spectacular slickrock canyons in the Glen Canyon region. Tremendous alcoves and vaulting cliffs soar 200 to 400 feet overhead around nearly every bend of the tortuously twisting gorge. Two memorable arches and a water-worn natural bridge add to the attraction. Campsites are numerous and scenic in Coyote Gulch, the stream flows year-round, and several good springs issue from the canyon walls among rich hanging gardens."
