"Lower Calf Creek Falls" Top 5 Page for this destination Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument Things to Do Tip by blueskyjohn

Lower Calf Creek Fall is easy to find. After coming down out of the Henry Mountains (if you are coming from Hanksville) you will see an entrance for Calf Creek Recreation Area. The trail head is just down the road from the parking lot, walking towards the campsites.

The trail is very nice and strolls along the Calf Creek for about three miles. About 2/3 of the was up the trail you can find some great Indian petraglyphs. This is an in and out hike for a total of six miles. The Calf Creek fall is about 125 feet high. It is a nice place to swim in the summer and around the falls does not receive much sunlight.

Address: Escalante National Monument
Directions: On RT-12 west bound before you reach Escalante from Dixie National Forest.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
