Silver Falls Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"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.
Not only is the hike down Silver Falls Creek an excellent scenic 3-day trip, it also offers insights into the struggles of Utah pioneers as they traversed one of the most difficult wagon roads in the West. Historical inscriptions in the canyon walls date from the 1880s to the uranium boom of the 1950s, with the George Brigham Hobbs inscription of 1883 being the highlight."
