Escalante Utah is a vast beautiful, unique, photogenic place to explore and you'll want to experience the most iconic settings first before delving further into Escalante's desert wilderness. I can design your hikes or sightseeing adventures that are based on your party's level of stamina and interest. You'll be amazed to find a stunning 5-story waterfall (bigger waterfall than largest in England!) with a delightful swimming hole in the desert.
Another 4 mile round-trip hike, you can see petrographs (ancient rock art) next to a Moqui house, 2 dramatic arches and then fill your water bottle at a streaming spring before returning to your car.
Escalante National Monument has many narrow and slot canyons and you'll want to experience "canyoneering." A premium easy canyon hike is only 30 miles from Escalante, and has outstanding textured tall sandstone curved walls with a shallow clear stream separating them in a narrow canyon.
These hikes are just a small sample, or the first layer, of what hikes and places to witness in this vibrant and breathtaking National Monument.
All hikes and suggested sights can be changed due to weather or other unforeseen factors.
My husband and I have rented out nightly vacation homes in Escalante, Utah for over 15 years. Being sporty people, we moved to Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument because we can be active year-round. I can hike or trail run all year, X-country ski or snowshoe in the winter, backpack and cycle in spring, summer, or fall and can kayak or swim anytime when it's warm. I have been an informal guide and advisor to our international guests, children, and grandparents because I know the right routes and places to send them. Escalante National Monument is a diverse and vast place to explore and I can lead guests to their best desert experience. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
