Hog Springs Rest Area to Hog Canyon

Hog Springs Rest Area to Hog Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"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."
