“Unmarked slot canyon in Escalante”
About 12 miles from the Boulder Mesa Restaurant along the Burr Trail Road is an unmarked slot canyon within the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Look for a pullout by the side of the road between 1 and 1.5 miles from the "trailhead parking" sign and a slit in the canyon walls covered by cottownwood trees. BE AWARE of flash flood warnings, and do not attempt to enter the slot canyon during a rain storm or when rain appears imminent.
One of the coolest and spookiest places I've ever seen. I heard about the slot canyon from the owner of the Boulder Mesa Restaurant, who gave me directions to find the canyon along the Burr Trail Road. It was incredibly eerie to walk the sandy path in between the canyon walls and hear nothing but dead silence. The trees growing on the canyon floor are totally cool, and give the whole place a very peaceful feel. Take flash flood warnings seriously though, since you do NOT want to be caught in a slot canyon during one.
