Hiking the Escalante by Rudi Lambrechtse

191 pages; 5 maps

An invaluable resource to anyone traversing the Escalante, this comprehensive guide details 43 hikes.

Realizing there are virtually no marked trails in the Escalante country (mostly canyons that wander and have many intersections, challenging anyone to write explicit description), this book includes directions to the trailhead, how to follow a particular route with choices of side canyons along the way, and occasional alternate endings. Some of the hikes may be appropriate for beginners. Some only the most experienced should attempt.
