Grand Wash Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is a flat hike with mostly firm ground, which makes it popular with easily intimidated visitors. Do not expect much alone time. On busy summer days, you will rarely go a few minutes without seeing other hikers."

"Grand Wash is one of only six drainages that slice through the Waterpocket Fold, and similar to Capitol Gorge, a walk down Grand Wash is a fairly leisurely jaunt, with little in the way of elevation gain along the floor of a desert canyon. The scenic appeal is found in the vertical canyon walls that tower above you on both sides."
