Escalante

Escalante

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (often just referred to as Escalante) spans nearly 1.9 million acres. From its incredible Grand Staircase of sun-drenched backcountry terraces and cliffs, across the rugged Kaiparowits Plateau, to the marvels of the Escalante River canyons, the Monument’s size, resources, and remote environment provide phenomenal opportunities for visitors. Nearly 3,000 square miles of colorful sandstone cliffs soar above narrow slot canyons, washes, seemingly endless slick-rock, prehistoric village sites, abandoned old Western film sets, and many other treasures.

Reaching from the small town of Escalante at the northeast end to Kanab in the southwest, it covers an area roughly the size of Delaware. It was also the last region in America to be explored.

Features of this incredibly vast area covering much of Southern Utah include numerous slot canyons (like Death Hollow, The Gulch, Zebra, and Twenty-mile Wash), Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulch, Calf Creek Falls, Sunset Arch, Devil’s Garden, the Toadstool Hoodoos, Petrified Forest State Park, Hole In The Rock Road, Dancehall Rock, and Coyote Gulch.
