"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.
