Re: Hiking Utah in June/July 2009

My family and I hiked Horseshoe Canyon a few summers back. It was in July, the weather was hot and dry, plenty of water is a must.

Here is a link to this trail, wfs:
http://www.utah.com/nationalparks/ca...hoe_canyon.htm

It is located about 60 miles from Moab, which is right next door to Arches. This was one of the most amazing hikes I have ever done. The pictographs are incredible, the Great Gallery at the end has to be seen.

The trail is very remote, we did not see another person the entire day. The hike is about 10 miles, all tolled. It's not a demanding hike, you follow a trail down into the canyon, follow the trail bed for about 4 miles to the end. Check with the park rangers for rain, the bed will flood and by the evidence of the damage to the foliage down there, I would not want to be there during rain.
