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."
--Brett Prettyman, Best Easy Day Hikes Capitol Reef National Park (Falcon Guides).
"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."
--Greg Witt, 50 Best Short Hikes: Utah's National Parks (Wilderness Press).
