Dogs Allowed

I'm not a fan of organized campgrounds, but I had to get out of the house where we work and live. Somewhere close and dog friendly. Kodachrome State Park is only 45 minutes west of us and they allow dogs. Yay! I did feel a bit guilty when my dog made foot-prints on the Zen-like raked dirt that surrounded our campsite. And what a treat it was to take a HOT shower after mountain biking a single track through weird red rock formations on Panoramic trail. When the sun set, the towers and monoliths lit up as if they were on fire. Sometimes civilized camping is pure pleasure.

What are your favorite hikes with your dog in Escalante ?

All hikes in the Escalante area/canyons are great for dogs except for Coyote Canyon and Peek-a-Boo/Spooky. If its hot, Grand Gultch on the Burr Trail follows a creek. Behind Escalante High School, Escalante river is accessible and the hiking in Escalante Canyon is beautiful. Hope this helps.
