Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Tours

Situated in the rocky desert terrain of southwestern Utah, the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is nearly two million acres of public, protected land. The ancient lands are full of bright sandstone cliffs and narrow canyons, with geological formations and beautiful natural terrain for miles. It extends from the north edge of the Grand Canyon up to the high plateaus of Utah.

The area gets its name from the sedimentary rock layers and their visualizations created by geologists. Many say you can read this area as layers of history and time. Several dinosaur fossils more than 75 million years old have been found in the park area. Since then prehistoric human settlements and even abandoned former Western film sets have been left behind here. Today outdoor recreational activities such as hiking, backpacking, camping, and off-roading are popular for visitors.

Practical Info

To get to the monument from Salt Lake City, drive south on I-15 and exit on U-20, then following U-89 to Glendale. There is no official entrance to the park, but there are several visitor centers scattered throughout. Entrance is free, though permits are required for overnight stays.
