Grand Staircase-Escalante is a beautiful place to drive through and hike around a bit. The area of the monument is ginormous, so there's everything from forest land to desert and everything in between. Two of the best drives I've ever taken--the Burr Trail from Boulder, Utah and Highway 12 from Boulder into the town of Escalante--were within the national monument.

My boyfriend and I are taking a road trip across the country, and I really would have loved to have seen the staircase, unfortunately it was raining and it should be noted the entire rout is dirt roads (I was not aware of this beforehand) . Plan according because we got stuck and ended up paying for a tow truck to come get us. I’m disappointed we didn’t see it.

Grand Staircase-Escalante is absolutely worth exploring. Although you'll find plenty of scenic drives, be sure to get out of the car for a hike. My favorite is the trail to Lower Calf Creek Falls. If you're visiting during the busy tourist season, go early in the day. A dip in the pool of the falls is the reward on a hot, summer day.

Grand Staircase-Escalante is truly incredible. Multicolored sandstone cliffs, ancient Native American settlements, abandoned Western movie sets, and stunning scenery. The Escalante Canyons are the more popular and less remote unit, but if you're feeling adventurous, head to the Grand Staircase. It's worth it-- just you and the rocks!
