Location: Zion National Park, Utah. At-large site near the North Gate Peaks Trail.
Scale is 0 to 4
Time of year visited: March
View: 4 Awesome, expansive view overlooking Russell Gulch.
Water: 1 Nearest available water in March was about 2.5 to 3 miles in either direction along the trail. But you could also cache some at the road.
Accessibility: 3 Only about a 2 mile trail hike (mostly) from Wildcat Canyon trailhead on Kolob Terrace Road.
Solitude: 3 At-large camping, so solitude is partly up to you. This was still fairly close to a trail. Didn’t see another soul.
Comfort: 2 I took a nice afternoon nap here but it was rocky and not too flat. Worth it for the view.
Coolness: 2.5 Camping on the edge of a canyon and didn’t see another person.
