Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument Things to Do: 49 reviews and 120 photos
At the northern reaches of the Monument you will find the Burr Trail. It begins in the town of Boulder and is paved through the Monument. The pavement ends when it reaches the Capitol Reef Natl Park. And it continues down the famous switchbacks to meet up with the Notom Road. However, you don't have to go that far to enjoy it. Take the first 15 miles as it goes past the "Gulch" and into Long Canyon. The Gulch is a well known trailhead for backpacking. But stay on the road and head into Long Canyon. This is a place to relax and enjoy. You can rush through here, but why? At the end of Long Canyon you will climb up through the Circle Cliffs. Take the road just past this exit and then turn around to enjoy the view. This is a wonderful secluded spot of earth that never fails to impress me. You can then backtrack to Hwy 12.
