Silver Falls Road Professional Review and Guide
"Silver Falls Creek, a deep and narrow tributary of the Escalante River that carves
through the Circle Cliffs, was part of Halls Crossing Road (as was Harris Wash to the
west), and even today, a hike down its gorge is not easy."
--Ron Adkison, Hiking Grand Staircase-Escalante & the Glen Canyon Region (Falcon Guides).
A quintasential desert hike. This trail follows a (mostly) dried up creek bed that connects with the Escalante River and Harris Wash. You hike between beautiful red sandstone cliff walls that go up several hundred feet (not a slot canyon hike, however).
There are quite a few rocky areas that can be tricky to hike over, especially with an overnight backpack. Don't expect to find much water (that you'd want to drink) along the trail. We rationed our water to last until we reached the Escalante River. Also, there is no trailhead. Once you reach the corral, park and start hiking. My GPS said it was 9.25 miles from the "trailhead" to the Escalante River.
