"This verdant hike in the midst of scorched rock delights dogs and dog lovers, and this unmapped primitive trail is an excellent respite from a day of driving. Your pooch will thank you for the opportunity to cool down and dog paddle in a crystal grotto."
--Dayna Stern, Best Hikes With Dogs: Utah (The Mountaineers Books).
"Hog Canyon is the principal drainage on the west side of North Wash along UT 95. The small spring-fed stream, draining the eastern flanks of Trachyte Point, courses through a very scenic canyon embraced by the bold sandstone walls of the Glen Canyon group of rocks: the Wingate, Kayenta, and Navajo Formations. Located at the canyon’s mouth alongside UT 95 is the Hog Springs Rest Area, a pleasant stopover featuring two picnic sites with awnings and tables and a restroom nearby.
The short stroll up Hog Canyon from the rest area offers a more intimate association with a dramatic desert canyon than scenic UT 95 can provide. One mile up the canyon, far beyond the noise of highway traffic, a deep pool and small waterfall in the shade of a deep alcove offer an attractive destination for a short hike on a warm spring or autumn day."
--Ron Adkison, Hiking Grand Staircase-Escalante & the Glen Canyon Region (Falcon Guides).
