Description: Join public lands advocate Chris Gorzalski and Great Old Broads for Wilderness (Southwest Utah Chapter) for a moderate 5-mile hike over varied terrain. Expect some water in Hackberry Canyon, a very steep climb (and descent) of the Cockscomb ridge, and another climb up the sandstone dome of Yellow Rock. Cottonwood Rd. may be impassable if there has been recent rain. In that case, an alternate hike will be found. Bring lunch, snacks, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and plenty of water. Advance registration required. Limit 12 people
Location: Hackberry Canyon Trailhead, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
