Box-Death Hollow Wilderness

The Box-Death Hollow Wilderness is a wild and remote area located on the Escalante Ranger District.  This rugged landscape of deep canyons, slickrock, and forest can be an intimidating area to travel.  The Box Trail #34009, the Roundy Trail #34012, and the Coleman Trail #34011 are the only maintained trails within the wilderness area. 

For experienced backcountry hikers the difficult backpacking route through Death Hollow offers a challenging wilderness experience. Extensive planning and research are recommended. The Hell's Backbone Road offers many scenic views into the canyons of the Box-Death Hollow Wilderness.
