The Grand Staircase - Escalante is a nearly 2 million acre tract of land located between the north rim of the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon National Park. Most visitors will see either the southern side of the park along Route 89 or the northern side of the monument along Route 12. Even if this is all you see, the park contains great vistas and wonderful hiking opportunities.
If you are able and have the right type of vehicle, drive along the unpaved roads in the park and take some of the more isolated hikes. The park is a vast wilderness, almost too massive to comprehend, and the further inside the park you go, the more you realize what an incredible place this is.
One strong word of advice. Avoid the town of Escalante, with its corrupt, money-grubbing police department. All you need is an out of state plate in order to get stopped for some imagined infraction.
