As part of a 10-day backpack/day-hike trip to S. Utah.
Really a fun hike - a bit toasty on the road-walk portion (why it is closed off is beyond me, it's better than most numbered dirt roads in S. Utah). It was fun to find the old 'telescope' that points to the arch, old bottle-caps, blue-on-white porcelain, etc. The trail is in remarkable condition for its disuse and age.
Drove down to the Hanksville ferry area for a swim afterwards.
Thanks for posting this hike and history.

Went out to see if the rumors about Fry Canyon being closed are true. They are. Not abandoned. Just closed. Came back and hiked the old trail down to Owachomo. No problems on the trail for the most part - did get turned around a bit below the old ranger's residence. All's well that ends well though. Glad I was able to see the monument a little differently than other folks.
