Escalante is like many other towns in Utah. Relatively small and off the main road. What makes this town wonderful is it's location at the hub of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. From here, there is the Boulder Mountain road north to Torrey. "Hole in the Rock" historic road south to Glen Canyon. The Burr Trail Road to the Waterpocket fold of Capitol Reef National Park. Anasazi State Park . Calf Creek Recreation Area, and the length of the Escalante River .
