Journey to Utah's remote Range Creek, where stunning Native American artifacts remained a local secret for decades. CAMPING: Designated campsites within the canyon are in the works, but for now it's prohibited. For overnight forays, pitch your tent outside the North Gate.WATER: Some hikers filter water from Range Creek, but pack in your own (one gallon per person per day). This creek is downstream from cattle country.SEASON: Spring and fall, with highs in the 60s and chilly nights, are primo.PERMITS: Required ($5 per person per day) and only available at Utah's Division of Wildlife Resources website (wildlife.utah.gov/range_creek).
