South of Tanner Rapids is the Escalante Route that winds alongside the Colorado River and provides an up-close view of the geological features of Arizona canyon country. Hikers who wish to explore this area may wish to choose this hike over the more strenuous Tanner Trail hike. This trail, which is actually an extension of the Tonto Trail, is challenging enough for most people. Only experienced hikers should attempt this 11-mile route, as it requires some rock climbing and difficult pack maneuvering. Water is only available at the river; bring your own supply of nutritious food and sufficient drinking water.
