Hackberry Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"A two- or three-day backpack in the Paria-Hackberry Wilderness Study Area in the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument. Hackberry is a highly scenic canyon with numerous side canyons to explore, interesting geology, Sam Pollock Arch, and Watson’s Cabin, an early homestead. Hackberry Canyon offers a variety of scenery as it cuts through the White and Vermilion Cliffs.

The upper portion of the hike, Round Valley Draw, is narrow, typical of canyons cut into the Navajo sandstone. Farther south, just before the canyon turns east and cuts through the East Kaibab Monocline (Cockscomb), it forms a valley bounded by the colorful formations making up the Vermilion Cliffs, and also exposes the banded Chinle formation. There are interesting side canyons, and the country above the canyons offers excellent opportunities for exploration. The area receives very little use, which enhances the sense of discovery."
