Death Hollow Professional Review and Guide

"The sandy trail begins by following the Escalante upriver. The canyon bottom has a fair amount of growth, but the growth offers very little shade. Expect to cross the river numerous times before reaching the Death Hollow confluence. At times, the river may be difficult to cross, depending on the season’s water flow. Do not cross the river during or after storms, as flows change rapidly and are often dangerous.

As the trail progresses upstream, the high canyon walls begin to narrow down, foreshadowing the terrain yet to come. On day 2, plan to day hike up Death Hollow. The high narrow canyons and inviting, mossy pools make the lower sections of Death Hollow the highlight of the entire canyon. Several unavoidable pools that require swimming lay in wait—expect to get wet. This section of the canyon can be easily seen in a good day’s hike."
