The hike to get the Cathedral is somewhat tricky. You’ll need to have some navigation skills, because the trail isn’t clearly marked. A GPS unit is a good idea. Start from the Egypt trailhead and watch for cairns along the way. You’ll traverse some sandstone desert and then along (or through) the Escalante River until you reach Neon Canyon. The Cathedral is located at the end of the canyon. Before you tackle this hike, get some specific directions from a hiking site like this one.
Make sure to check the weather before you go – a summer storm can cause deadly flash floods in the area. Take along plenty of drinking water, and travel with others for safety. Make sure you have sufficient navigation skills for this hike.
