Description:

This is one of the wild places left in Utah that is still relatively undiscovered compared to places like Zion National Park. Few people come here in comparison and it's not as built up. Escalante is a charming little town and not too expensive. I recommend the ever-popular Lower Calf Creek falls hike and the Devil's Rock Garden area. I wish they'd better maintain the hole-in-the-rock road but if you can get yourself a 4 wheel drive truck or SUV (high clearance!) you have a whole new area to explore: Peek-a-Boo and Spooky Gulches (you might be able to reach those in a standard vehicle), Coyote Gulch, Dance Hall Rock, and the Hole in the rock itself. It's a nasty climb down it to reach Lake Powell but the cool soak in the lake is worth it. There is lots of primitive camping in that area - we had a magical night camping at Dance Hall Rock. Go check it out before the crowds discover this wonderful area and ruin it.
