Will pick and choose as to which of these we actually do and in what order. Will not be able to do them all this trip.
All ratings are for dry surfaces and have not been prerun; may or may not have been graded; and are some combination of gravel and dirt. All would be whole day trips, some may end earlier than others depending on length of hikes, etc. All trips will leave from Canyon Country Lodge in Escalante; camping is available nearby and the town has full services (gas, food, restaurants, etc)
