I'm thinking about heading to Utah this spring or fall for a week or so of backpacking. I'd like to get your suggestions on where to go.Here are my criteria:Not Zion (the only place in Utah I've been to, it was awesome except for the hordes near Zion Canyon)I'll have a rental car so no off-roading to get to the trailheadNo canyoneering or climbing -- not my thing. Moderate scrambling is OK.Trails are fine but not neededI'm OK with breaking the week into a couple shorter trips or spending a day or two day-hiking if that's the best way to see an areaCurrently looking at Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef and Escalante but any place I can get my slickrock fix is fine.Also if you can recommend planning resources that would be appreciated.Thanks.
Canyonlands Needles district - out to Chesler park and around. Or a Salt Creek trip, but hard to get permits. At least one of these should be on everyone's bucket list.Mine and I believe one of Mules Ears favorite too, Grand Gulch.
