Thought I'd post my 6 day adventure (April 9 - 14). The HITR Trail was quite an amazing event. It's a three day trip from the pavement (near Hite UT) and back. This trail has one of the highest pucker factors around, not to mention challenging.
The first day (Saturday) was cold, windy and snowy. After leaving Blanding, we did a loop that took us to Lewis Lodges which are cliff dwellings embedded on a high ledge only accessible by a very narrow ledgey foot path. It was too windy to traverse as it would have made it very dangerous had a wind gust developed.
After leaving that location, it was still snowing lightly as we went on to the next area called Hotel Rock. These dwellings are much more accessible and are in amazingly good condition. The trail continuing back down to the paved road was pretty "interesting". Steep, tippy, narrow, lock-to-lock steering, are a few descriptions, not to mention a need for spotters.
Arriving at the bottom of the trail we ran a couple miles up Arch Canyon, which is just a few hundred yards from the bottom of Hotel Rock Trail. It was too late in the day to go to the end (another 6 miles) so we headed back to find a campsite less than a mile from the mouth of the canyon. It was pretty darn nippy (19°) that night.
