"Mosaic Canyon hiking" Walk / Hike / Play Tip by goingsolo

  Mosaic Canyon
by goingsolo

Favorite thing: Although its not exactly a trail, you can walk up to four miles within Mosaic Canyon. The colorful rocks make this a pretty hike and I'd imagine the cool temperatures the canyon walls provide by blocking out the sun are quite refreshing in the dead heat of summer.

A few spots require scrambling over rocks and there are supposedly two "dry falls" at the end which you must scramble over to complete the hike. I'm not sure what or where these are, but I stopped when I got to the first significant rock wall. It looked like it had some good footholds and was doable, but the guy hiking just behind me cautioned against it. Since I generally follow unsolicited advice from hikers, I decided to turn back at this point.
