“Enjoy this scenic trip along Coyote Gulch from Hole-In-The-Rock Road to the Escalante River”— Dan Broman
The route runs along the plateau for 1.5 miles before descending into Coyote Gulch. The gulch slowly narrows and enters a canyon. From there, the trail reaches the confluence with Hurricane Wash at 6.5 miles (which provides alternate access from the Hurricane Wash Trailhead). At 8.1 miles, you'll reach Jacob Hamblin Arch. The arch is perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing aspect of this hike. It's cathedral-like grandeur cannot be done justice in the writing of this description; be sure to stop here and take the arch in.
Next, you'll arrive at Coyote Natural Bridge at 9.8 miles. Past Coyote Natural Bridge, the trail skirts two sets of waterfalls before reaching the Escalante River. There are many campsites available along the route, the best of which are found around Jacob Hamblin Arch and Coyote Natural Bridge.
