April 17th 2017
In April of 2017, I drove to Utah and joined my hiking club at Squaw Flats Campground. A couple members of the club attempt to get the group site there every year and I wanted to check it out for my self this year. I was not disappointed.
The first hike I did was right out of camp and was called the Peekaboo Trail. The trail follows along some benches and there are several holes in the top of one bench that are windows or peekaboos, thus the name Peekaboo Trail. There are a few ladders you have to climb to get to the end of the trail which ends at Peekaboo Camp where there are several petroglyphs.
On the return hike, I took the Lost Canyon Trail to make a loop out of it. I was glad to take the Lost Canyon trail on the return. I always enjoy making a loop out of a hike if possible so I can see more terrain, however, taking Lost Canyon made the hike longer and I realized that hiking in the canyon bottom that there was not much of a breeze and it got a little warm. Not too horrible though. It was only April after all. I would not want to hike here in summer, that is for sure.
