The perfect intro for first time backpackers in a beautiful forested red rock canyon. Only 9 miles of backpacking with some optional side hikes to ancient cliff dwellings. The trail follows a small stream which we’ll purify for drinking and plenty of shade makes this a great summer and fall expedition
Group will meet at 9 am at Four Corners Adventures in Blanding, Utah. After introductions we will double check gear and ensure everyone has everything needed for the trip. You are welcome to use your own backpacking equipment or we can supply everything just let us know. After everyone is ready we’ll load up our van and head out highway 95 to south cottonwood and up to the Hammond Canyon trailhead. Drive is very scenic and lasts about 1.5 hours. Depending on group desires and size we may stop on drive to see and cliff dwelling or short side hike.
Once reaching the trailhead we’ll start off with an early lunch overlooking Hammond at the van so that we’re packing it in our bellies instead or our packs. The trail begins with steep switchbacks which are generally well maintained, but steep. After reaching the bottom of the canyon we’ll find ourselves walking along a quiet stream bed for several miles until we reach a suitable camp. We’ll drop our packs here and set up camp. Some people may relax in camp and read a book or we’ll have time for an optional hike without our packs to check out some cliff dwellings. Then we’ll cook our dinners and refill our water supply before laying out on our sleeping bags and enjoy the impressive night sky. No campfires are allowed within the canyon so all cooking will be done on small backpacking stoves.
Come morning you’ll find your guides preparing coffee and oatmeal for breakfast. It’s amazing how much better oatmeal tastes in the backcountry. After breakfast we’ll repack our bags and continue our hike through the canyon. This canyon is far from any roads and feels very remote. Today’s hike is slightly downhill and has short climbs in and out of the streambed. For lunch we’ll snack on fresh fruit, jerky and other trail snacks. The canyon eventually opens up and we’ll hike out an old jeep trail that was once used by cattle ranchers, but is now impassable. This climb is fairly steep, but we’ll take our time and have a cold drink waiting the in the van at the top of the climb. Trip ends early afternoon day 2 and it’s approximately an hour drive back to the shop.
