Excellent hike! We went from the Red Well trailhead, but it is pretty close to Hurricane Wash. We spent 3 nights in the gulch and passed 4 arches, indian ruins, petroglyphs, half a dozen waterfalls, and some amazingly beautiful cliff walls. I highly recommend this hike!

Went at the end of spring. Very little bugs and vegetation getting in your way. Prepare yourself for plenty of stream crossings as you wind your way through the canyon gulch. Check out a video on the trail I put together a while back, cheers! PS. Whatever you do, Do not take Smokey Mountain Road into the area.

I always drop into Coyote Gulch via the sneaker route and park next to the water tanks. Hurricane is a long, hot approach to the Gulch. Coyote Gulch is amazing! Waterfalls, arches, and natural bridges.

The gulch itself was incredible and remains my favorite hike. The waterfall just before reaching the confluence with the Escalante river was a perfect place to cool off and have lunch. However, getting to the gulch via Hurricane wash was a long, hot, slow walk. I would definitely not come in this way again. Better to go straight for Crack in the wall which brings you in right about at the Jacob Hamblin arch.

Bring lots of water and something else to purify more! This one was hot!! Stay up on the river beds don't walk through the sand its way more challenging. I felt relieved once I realized how much easier it was even though the terrain isn't as flat.
