About 45 minutes on this nearly straight-and-level unpaved road leads you to Devils Garden, which has bizarre rock formations for you to wander around. Most visitors go only that far, then turn around back to Route 12 near Escalante UT. That portion of the road...More

What can I say - it's a well-scraped dirt road. Dusty with friendly cattle criss-crossing the road. it is a very wide dirt road and mildly scenic. But, it's worth any inconvenience to reach various canyons and other attractions.

Canyons of Escalante are almost all accessed via this road. It's completely washboarded, and not graded with any regularity (I think I read it gets graded twice a year?) But, if you plan accordingly, it's not a huge deal. Real by blogs at accidentaladventuress.com for...More
