Aquarius Trail Hut System Crosses the Halfway Point


“Aquarius Trail Hut System Crosses the Halfway Point”

Escalante, Utah.  June 17, 2020 – Work on the Aquarius Trail Hut System has crossed over the halfway point with the completion of 3 of the 5 huts. The remaining 2 huts are scheduled to be completed over the next 6-8 weeks. Once completed, the network of huts will provide a true backcountry experience for those thru-biking the 175-mile multi-purpose route. It will also serve the region via sustainable economic and tourism development as well as conservation education and heritage preservation in a region celebrated for its unique history, geologic and geographic diversity. The Aquarius Trail Hut System utilizes existing forested double-track and singletrack trails from the peak of Brian Head for approximately 175-miles east to the town of Escalante. The trail twists and turns through some of Utah’s most beautiful country including Hell’s Backbone, Red Canyon, and Powell Point. The huts are sourced from recycled shipping containers that have been retrofitted to sleep 6 people per unit with 2 units at each location. They were designed to have a minimal environmental impact. Beyond transporting them into their designated hut locations they don’t require any new environmental disturbance. The Aquarius Trail Hut System offers a unique accommodation for those interested in multi-day adventures on thru-trails but is also a great option for families exploring the area. If you are interested in staying at our huts and experiencing a part of Utah unknown to many, we encourage you to visit our website at and contact us to receive more information.
