The time suggested is Spring and Fall.
Last week I hiked Hidden Canyon again. Temperatures were in the 60’s and it was perfect. In about 2 weeks most trees will be in full bloom and the leaves will be returning. Good for photographers, good for hikers.
Over the next two weeks I have plans to visit a canyon in Kolob and go on a three day backpacking trip in Escalante. Lots of new materiel coming soon.
So if you are planning a trip to southern Utah, now is the time. the weather is cool and it’s still not insanely busy.
If you need advice where to go, don’t be afraid to make a comment, I will do my best to help.
