9 Photos to Inspire You to Backpack Death Hollow this Summer

By: Travis Poulson + Save to a List

One of the best weekends in recent memory. I took my wife and 12 of our closest friends backpacking down Death Hollow in Bolder, Utah.

We spent 3 days backpacking through one of the most beautiful canyons in Southern Utah. The sunset drenched drop-in was spectacular.

Our campsite was next to a lush, refreshing swimming hole. 


On the trail the next morning.


We discovered a natural water-park with pools and water slides.


You could hide under the little waterfall.


The rest of the canyon was gorgeous.




And finally, the climb out was a riot.
