“Big country for wandering”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

The Circle Cliffs is an area that is surrounded (270 degrees) by tall sandstone cliffs. It is like being in a sedimentary rock stockaded. The east is against the Water Pocket Fold up-swell, the north is Capital Reef/Boulder Mt. and west are the cliffs east of the Escalante River. A broad plateau is contained within that is paved with sedimentary sandstone of varying types, eroded by periodic run-offs. Wooded by pinion and juniper. It is the access area to Twisty Mule Canyon, Horse Canyon, Wolverine Canyon and Little Death Hollow. Good dirt road that is probably mush after a rain. If dry a 2 wheel drive with higher clearance can navigate. Camping is in primitive sites and you are asked to only camp where others have camped before. You will not be crowded or provided any services like water, toilets or tee shirts. You will get a big-sky kind of eye-full. Great place to explore, go for a ride, hike, and explore. Take everything you need.
