Hog Springs Rest Area offers 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. From the large rest area parking lot, cross the bridge spanning North Wash and enter the picnic site. Immediately before reaching the second picnic table, follow the trail that descends to the banks of the small stream. Cross the stream and proceed up canyon via the slopes above the wash on the right. Bold slickrock walls of orange Wingate sandstone, dimpled with solution cavities, bound the lower reaches of the narrow canyon. The trail begins as an obvious boot-worn path, but recent flash flood activity will determine how well defined you find it.
