Road Trip Day 8
I'm not much for trail descriptions, so I would reference you to ddgrunning's triplog on 04/30/2022, it appears to have followed the same basic hike that I did for this as a loop hike. I'll upload the GPS track for anyone interested in doing this.

Parked the car at the first trailhead near the end of the hike at the water tanks, then hiked to the coyote trailhead about 2.7 miles down the road. From there it is about a 1.8 mile hike on Slick rock following cairns to the Crack in the Wall where you enjoy the excellent view of Steven Arch then squeeze your way down through the cracks to the top of the hill where you then hike down to the streambed (about 1 mile).

Heading up the streambed you pass Cliff Arch, followed by Indian Pictographs, Coyote Natural Bridge, and finally Jacob Hamblin Arch.

We exited the Gulch by climbing out on the side of the canyon where the some steps had been carved into the wall. It was a little nerve-racking in some places, but since we didn't have a backpack it was doable. After exiting the Gulch follow the cairns North West to the car over slick rock and desert (2.0 miles) to the parked car.

This is an exhausting hike, but one of the best hikes I have ever done. Most folks make this an over night hike and either exit or enter through Hurricane Wash (that would require another vehicle and be a longer hike).
