Helping some friends plan a trip to southern Utah toward the end of April, would love some input from you.
They have 5 full days out there, scenery and wilderness quality are the priority. Not driven by mileage, can do up to 7 miles/day. No rapelling or technical scrambling/climbing. Ideally they don't have to carry more than a day's worth of water. Have reasonable navigation skills, but wouldn't want to go super far outside of helpful-for-routefinding drainages. Did the Silver Falls Bench/Escalante/Choprock loop in Escalante a couple years ago, worked out well.
Any suggestions of great loop routes much appreciated! Esclanate's an obvious choice, but if there are other areas to check out, let me know...
