Beautiful lake with beautiful view of Powell Point of the Escalante. Hardly anybody there even though Bryce NP was packed. Lots of great camping, trails and atv trails...with nobody on them.

I would highly recommend leaving early in the morning. My wife and I camped at the campground and started the hike around 8 AM. Pictographs are really cool, falls are beautiful. Because we left early enough we had the falls basically to ourselves besides one lady who came about 20-30 mins after we arrived. It was also cooler out having left early. On our way out we must have passed 30+ people. Still one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done and would recommend for everyone.

Zebra and Tunnel Slots

Zebra Slot is incredible...but short. Still, it's worth seeing. We hiked it in April 2015 and everything was dry making the hike through the wash especially grueling on the way back. I found a website that tried to explain doing both slots as a loop but we must have dropped down too soon and ended up having to hike a LOT in the wash. Even though it's not a looooong hike, our legs were pretty tired. But, man is it pretty...and the Moqui Marbles are so cool...just take your time and enjoy the views.

Quick little hike across some slickrock to see the arch. Can then continue to explore Cedar Wash itself.

We hiked from the Hwy 12 bridge (near Upper Calf Creek TH) to Death Hollow and back. It's about 7 one way. The trail is very easy but is almost entirely loose/hardpack sand. It's not hard to loose the trail but if you stick to the river you should see where other people have trekked. It took us 4 hours to reach the confluence and we were all beginners with 30lb packs. You end up crossing the river NUMEROUS times so bring shoes that dry quickly otherwise your feet will be wet the entire time. No shortage of water anywhere (late May) and the dog had a blast as well.

Easy road to get to the bridge. Very scenic but probably won't do it a second time.
