Escalante River Professional Review and Guide

"This watery adventure leads you and your dog downstream beneath white sandstone and red Wingate walls. (Wingate refers to a type of rock dating back 200 million years, to the end of the Triassic era.) Your paws will remain wet the whole way—time the hike so you don’t get too cold hiking in the desert! Since this is a one-way junket, leave a shuttle car at the east end of the trail or arrange in advance for a pickup. Don’t count on cell service in this remote area."
