Photo Gallery: Backpacking Utah’s Coyote Gulch

With soaring, redrock canyon walls that go for miles, surprisingly lush greenery, a year-round creek that saves you from having to carry a lot of water, and relatively easy hiking, it’s little wonder that Coyote Gulch in southern Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument has become a classic two- to three-day backpacking trip, and popular with families. Fall and spring are the best times to hike it. Check out this gallery of photos for inspiration. Then read my story about a weeklong family trip spent backpacking Coyote Gulch as well as dayhiking in Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks, with more photos, a video, and info for planning your trip there.
