“The road that takes you to all the awesome hikes!”

Reviewed 4 May 2018

Sooooo, the road is in real need of some work.The wash board was harsh! That said, we did drive down 1 day to Peekaboo/Spooky Slot canyons, and it was worth it but we had trouble getting ourselves to do it again to go on more hikes. Hopefully the will run a grader soon.

We drove out to Hole in the Rock in a razor. We saw other vehicles, mostly trucks making the same trek, but wouldn't recommend driving it unless you had a vehicle with high clearance. The road is extremely rough in spots. We had a beautiful day and enjoyed the scenery. The 31 mile trip took us about an hour and a half both ways - so definitely plan on taking time (and plenty of fuel, just in case). We have visited the Lake Powell side of Hole in the Rock before, so it was really fun to visit the starting point. I would say one visit is enough, given the length of time it took us.

We were driving a chevy malibu car - great gas mileage for a road trip but this washboard road was hard on the car. Can't have it both ways! It had rained just prior to our visit. We heard that the road is graded but it hadn't been for a while, I think. However, it is a necessary evil to travel this road to access some of the best hiking in the Escalante area.

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 is easy even for a sedan, although we did see one lost hubcap on a bumpy stretch.

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.
