backpack coyote gulch

Coyote Gulch is a beautiful canyon near Escalate. The daily miles will be low and will depend on how much exploring the group wants to do. We will drive down Thursday night. Friday we will backpack into Coyote Gulch and explore the area. Day two we will hike to Jacob Hamblin arch and camp there. Day three we will get up early and head out. This trip will involve a lot of shallow wading along the riverbed. A 165' steep climb out of the canyon requires scrabbling up a steep slab with exposure. I will bring a hand line to help if people need assistance. If we get up and out quickly on Sunday we can stop on the way out and do the lower part of Peek-A-Boo and Spooky Gulches, some fun and easy non-technical narrow slot canyons. This trip is limited to a small group size. Call Kevin Earl (801)568-3791, kbe44@hotmail.com to register.
