OK, I did a lot of research on this and had a hard time deciding whether to do it or not. I was afraid of flat tires, high clearance and dings in the car. I am writing this to tell you that I did drive it today and it was totally fine. For those of you that are reading this... More

This graded road provides access to a variety of hiking experiences in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and adjacent Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Not a good place to drive after rain.

Have driven multiple trips on this road and it is best taken in a high clearance vehicle if you go any farther than Devils Garden. This past trip we had a car and when we traveled 43 miles from start of road we were really anxious about it. The fact is most of the trails to slot canyons are off... More

The only way into many of the attractions of the Escalante area, it didn't look too bad but we were quickly proved wrong. Our Ford can (small campervan) shaked, rattled and slowly came apart - the door unhinged! You really need a 4WD. We met another couple who did it one of those tiny Fiat's and they were as exhausted... More

Be sure to stop by the Visitor's Center on your way in town and get the hiking trail maps for where you want to go. They will help with recommendations. Be sure to see the narrows and the Devil Gardens.

Our ATV rental was definitely the way to explore this area. It got us quickly and easily (washed out roads no problem!) to all the great sights. Fun road to great hiking trails.

Road can be navigated by a passenger vehicle. But the more ground clearance the better. Keep your speed moderate, and enjoy the view this great county provides.

Take a Utv or rent one and enjoy a wonderful back country experience. Miles of trails and incredible views with no crowds.
