Yellow Rock 5524
Distance/Elevation: 2.4 miles RT/953 feet elevation gain
This is a unique, short hike if passing through Grand Staircase on the Cottonwood Road. We got the idea from the BLM visitor center in Kanab. They can give you a 1-page handout with directions and descriptions that is spot-on. Following is a short synopsis if you don’t get the BLM sheet.
14.1 miles N of 89 on Cottonwood Rd (400) is the Lower Hackberry TH. This TH is clearly marked. Instead of parking there, backtrack S .2 miles on Cottonwood and park on the E side of the road in a small parking area where Road 430 starts E.
From here bushwhack W a short distance, crossing the Paria, to the mouth of the canyon where the trail to Yellow Rock begins. The trail climbs steeply out of the draw and then becomes enjoyable to the summit.
