Escalante | Hikes & Slot Canyons


There is so much to see in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. You won't find a more scenic, rugged and remote place to hike. In the south-western section, The Paria River and its tributaries have carved out buttes, mesas and canyons including one of the worlds longest slot canyons, Buckskin Gulch. The Canyons of the Escalante carved out by the Escalante River and its tributaries, offer some very popular hikes including Calf Creek Falls, the Peek-A-Boo and Spooky Gulch slot canyons and Coyote Gulch.
