Backpacking Reflection Canyon

duration: 5 days

difficulty: Moderate

group size: 6

experience: Beginner


Reflection Canyon has become a bucket list destination for many a landscape photographer. Nestled deep in Grand Staircase Escalante, the only way to access it is on foot. Panoramic vistas, remote red rock landscapes, the sparkling blue water of Lake Powell and an infinite sky – that’s what makes Reflection Canyon a classic. Yet accessing this sought-after viewpoint is not a trivial matter. The closest outpost of civilization is the town of Escalante, Utah; from there, you have to be prepared for more than fifty miles of increasingly rough dirt road travel followed by a minimum of 15+ off-trail miles of hiking (7.5 miles each way). For the intrepid adventurers who are not deterred by such challenges, backpacking Reflection Canyon can be like stepping through a portal to a different world.  


- 3 Days/2 Nights on the trail.
