Owl Creek in Cedar Mesa Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This classic southern Utah hike has just about all you could wish for in a canyon hike. It is truly spectacular. Owl Creek and its neighbor, Fish Creek, are outstanding archaeological hikes in the Grand Gulch and Cedar Mesa area. Cedar Mesa is renowned for exquisite Anasazi ruins, stunning landscape, gentle spring flowers, and solitude. Because this is a sacred region, dogs are slowly being phased out. To keep Owl Creek open to dogs, it’s imperative to clean up after dogs, keep dogs out of fragile archaeological sites, and prevent dogs from frolicking in the springs and creeks, as they provide drinking water for humans and wildlife. Bring a leash to avoid trouble."
