I'm sold! This fall I might set up camp at Roy's Peak Vista and blaze a trail to the Banta Shut-In. Has anyone here done that?
BenTheGrate posted a report starting at Roy's Peak Vista
I've come in from the Telephone Canyon site and it is also fairly easy walk/route, there is even a social trail in places. It took us about 2.5 hrs, with packs, to the Shut-In.
How about posting a link to the thread with your trip report in it Mule Ears?If I remember correctly you posted a trip report of your hike through Strawhouse Canyon through Banta Shut-In and over to Juniper Canyon and The Basin? I could be getting it mixed up with someone else's.
If you go to Banta please bring along an extra trash bag and pack out any trash you find at the shut-in. I frequently find half-buried or hidden trash and pack out 1/4 of a backpack full or more every trip. I always think to myself that dozens (perhaps hundreds) of hikers have been to this wonderful spot and seen the litter strewn about and done nothing - shame on them!.. TWWG
and we got to meet webmaster Eric before he left the Park for good.
