Additional Information

Southern Utah’s Escalante River winds through a magical canyon country deep in the Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument. Backpack along the banks of the river, camp beneath natural sandstone arches, and wiggle through slot canyons as you explore the last mapped place in the continental United States. Spend 3 days and 2 nights camping beneath the stars, trekking through the lazily flowing river (perfect for the backpacker who truly enjoys getting their feet wet!), and marveling at the native tribal ruins and pictographs sprinkled left and right. Get to know some of Southern Utah’s intricate canyon hideaways including Death Hollow and the Escalante Natural Arch, and you’ll never want to leave.
