Does anyone have any recommendations for a one (or two) night backpacking trip with swimming and maybe no more than seven hours from Salt Lake City? I've done Coyote Gulch, Death Hollow, Narrows and Kolob's Arch. We'll be doing Paria later this year. Looking for spot for a late June trip.

About 3 miles up South Mule Canyon on Cedar Mesa, is a beautiful pool, great diving opportunities. A few ruin sites up from there, including one above the aforementioned pool. I don't know if it is within 7 hours of Salt Lake, fairly close I would think.

Just an FYI for anyone visiting Cedar Mesa:

"Washing, bathing or swimming is not permitted in or near water sources such as springs, streams and pot holes"

"No swimming or bathing is allowed in the pools, streams or potholes."

If you've done Death Hollow, check out Boulder Creek. Great swimming in the narrows,
