Overview: Death Hollow is a fantastic, relatively deep canyon with a nice flow of water. If you don’t mind getting wet, continue up Death Hollow where there is a mandatory swim. The Canyon can be explored up to 15 miles where it begins to branch off in various directions. You must have scrambling skills to take this one on.

Approach: From Hwy 12 leaving Escalante, turn left on an old dirt road 2 miles past Hole in the Rock Road. Follow this north just past the junctions that split to the left. Continue north to a turn-around spot and park. Head north into the canyon.
