Hog Spring Professional Review and Guide

"For those looking for an accessible, easy hike Hog Spring is a great choice. It’s one of the easiest hikes in this book and is suitable for anyone, as long as you don’t mind walking across some marshy ground and through knee-high grasses."

"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."

"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."
