DescriptionIt is secluded and quite exposed to the sun, but it is also prone to cool breezes and some tower routes are north facing. Obvious distractions as with the more popular known climbs in Echo Canyon are noisy railroad, freeway sounds, and of course, the incessant shooting....and in most cases, this is A classic example of a place with weapons in the wrong hands.
The rock is conglomerate and will clean up with more traffic as more people become attracted to this unique climbing area of short free standing towers.
Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details
The Echo Canyon climbing areas are located within the Henefer-Echo Wildlife Management Area. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources closes all access to the WMA each year from January 1 to the second Saturday in April to protect wintering wildlife.
Getting ThereFrom I-84/I-80 take exit 169 for the little town of Echo as for all the other Echo Canyon climbs. Turn LEFT toward Echo and drive 2.1 miles north through Echo toward Henefer. The Witches are even marked courtesy of the town of Echo and are quite obvious on the east side of the road. A convenient turn out and parking spot is found just 100m north of the Witches sign.
Please close the gate behind you when you access this area. If not, the horses will run loose out onto the tracks or road.
