Smoky Hollow Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Smoky Hollow is a narrow canyon that is a tributary of the main Wesses Canyon, and the easy trail through it is accessed from Smoky Mountain Road. In the canyon, the trail passes some good examples of the naturally occurring slow-burning coal deposits that characterize the Smoky Mountain region. For the most part, the trail winds along in the wash, so sections can be slightly loose and sandy. The canyon is pretty, and at the lower end there are some good views down the larger Tibbet Canyon out into the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

Special Attractions: Easy, scenic trail winding through a pleasant canyon; Naturally occurring slow-burning coal deposits; Can be driven as a loop trail with the Kelly Grade portion of Smoky Mountain Road. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
