Kanab Creek Wilderness on the North Rim Grand Canyon. We started from Sowats trailhead which I had not been out to. Fair amount of dirt road driving but nothing too rough. After car camping the night before started down from Sowats trailhead on good trail. Down to the Esplanade and the top to Kwagunt Hollow. From there it was off trail down Kwagunt boulder hopping and passing a few pools along the way. Eventually it drops to Jumpup Canyon where we hiked upstream . More pools in Jumpup heading up canyon until we reached a pour off taking a break. There was a mini grotto and small pool for the break and much needed shade. There also used to be a ladder for access to Jumpup Nail Trail above but now only a rope. No confidence in the rope this was our turn around point.

After the break we back tracked down Jumpup to Sowats Canyon. Then up Sowats with some more boulder hopping but easier than Kwagunt. There was also more water in Sowats and we learned why about 1 mile up finding a nice spring filling the creek. Above the spring it's dry and eventually we hit the Jumpup Nail trail that crosses Sowats Canyon. Now back on trail it was fairly quick across the Esplanade back to Kwagunt Hollow and closing the loop. Then back up trail to the rim about 16 miles in total on the day. Only ran into 4 backpackers all day, not bad for a holiday weekend. Great hike in some new country!
