Thread: Best time of the year to go to Escelante? AZ?

    Best time of the year to go to Escelante? AZ?

    I'm planning a 7-10 days canyoneering trip for next year and debating about the actual area we should pick. Two areas/canyons that are high on the list are the ones below...I was wondering what would be the best time of the year to visit:
    • Escelante (Choprock, Neon, Ringtail, Baker, etc.)
    • AZ (Illusions, Insomnia, etc.) - Mongolian Rim area (May consider other areas nearby, but not Grand Canyon Area)


    Thx

    I've not been to the AZ canyons but for Escalante canyons I would recommend late April or early May or late September or early October. More light in April/May, however. Water levels are critical for Choprock so be prepared anytime due to runoff or flash floods moving the sand dams around.
