It holds some of the greatest treasures in So. UT but that road can drive me insane. Good luck ever driving to the end of it!!! If you can you are a better man than me.

We only traveled in to the slot canyons at about mile 26. It is indeed a washboard road. At the visitor center we said we'd heard the road was a slow 10-15 per mile road and that it was a 50-60 per mile road and the ranger said, "yep! It is whatever you make it". It definitely is that. We... More

Headed down washboard, dust road to get to slot canyons to hike peek boo and spooky slot canyons. You should have a good car made for off road if possible. Adhere to ranger warnings regarding conditions such as flash.flood can occur rapidly. There is no satellite or WiFi in the area. This is wilderness, take precaution.

Check with the locals to see if the road is passable in your vehicle. We went in our Ford Sport Trac and it was fine, but that can and does change in the blink of a rain storm

We were told that the road was washboard. So, we started to drive to the slot canyons about 26 miles down the road and then planned to visit Devil's Garden on the way back. However, after only a few miles at 10-15 mph due to the serious washboard, we continued to Devil's Garden because we wanted to salvage at least... More

I had no idea when we booked the trip to Escalante that so many of the major hikes began on this long dirt road. Fortunately, the road had been recently graded so we didn't have any problems traveling the 25 miles to Peekaboo Canyon. Being a bit of a "city girl" I was concerned about driving so far on dirt---but... More

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.
