9 Marvelous Miles of Trail Running Escalante Utah
Powell Point can be seen on Highway 12
Under the icon of Powell Point or "Pink Mountain" in Escalante Utah, lies a single track that leads 4 and 1/2 miles down to Henderson Canyon. Pink hillsides, strayed arches, and endless vistas distracted me from the grueling inclines. The Ponderosas kept the morning heat at bay and a few steep ravines slowed our heart rates down. 9+ miles round-trip trail running was finished in a couple of hours verses 4 hours at least for hiking.
