Kitchen Canyon runs north off Highway 89 to intersect with BLM 587 and 581.  The easy trail crosses through the lower steps of the Escalante Staircase, passing through junipers and open valleys of sage bordered by sandstone walls.  The dirt and sand road is irregularly maintained.  One steep sandy wash crossing is the hardest part of the trail.

A huge level campsite in the junipers, 2.5 miles from the trailhead, can support six rigs.  The pull-through sites are suitable for trailers or smaller camping rigs.   There are multiple stone fire rings scattered about.  A small one-rig site sits on the east side of the road down a small spur at 2 miles in.  The trailhead also has a large flat area usable for camping. Expect a lot of road noise.
