Watson Wander: Hiking around escalante — A waterfall, a cathedral, and a devilish garden

From the bloggers at Watson Wander.

After being stuck inside for a three days while the wind howled and the temperatures barely made it out of the 40s, things improved around mid-week and we were able to resume our exploration of the area. Starting with an easy hike to a very impressive waterfall.

The trail to Calf Creek Falls is an easy 6-mile round trip hike into a deep canyon. With not much elevation change, and a big pay off at the end, this is one of the more popular, family friendly hikes in the area. Expect the parking lot to be full. We arrived around 3:30 on a chilly Wednesday afternoon and were surprised to only find one or two open parking spots. I guess the lesson is get there early.

The trail meanders along the bottom of deep canyon with towering mineral-streaked cliffs on either side.
