Yellow Rock Canyon via Box Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This premier day hike follows two such long-abandoned stock trails and an interesting cross-country route across the mesa.
Among the mouth of Cottonwood Creek Wash, Hackberry Canyon, and The Box of the Paria River, rises a high, wedge-shaped mesa punctuated by an array of Navajo Sandstone domes and towers. On the far northern reaches of the mesa are the Death
Valleys, upper and lower, and cattle have been grazed there for more than a century.

Numerous trails have been forged by ranchers between the rims of the mesa and the Paria River and Hackberry Canyon, affording access to water for their stock. Some of the trails are still used by cattle today, while others are no longer useful and have been abandoned."
