Emily M. on Lower Calf Creek Falls Trail
Gorgeous waterfall! Loved walking in the water, so refreshing ! Very straightforward trail.
Emily M. on Escalante Natural Bridge
Nice stroll along the river, a few semi-deep river crossings so wear sandals or water shoes and shorts! No difficulty whatsoever but pleasant + nice bridge. Our intro hike to Escalante!
We drove down the night before so we could camp nearby (the first-come-first-serve campsite near the trailhead was full so we found a free primitive site 15 min. north). We got to the trailhead at 9am and got the last parking spot. The trail was beautiful and shaded half the time. The falls were very cool and refreshing! When we got back the parking lot and all along the road was jam packed for free Public Lands day. Normally there is a $5 day use fee and camping is $15/day. Dog friendly although we didn't have dogs I ended up carrying out pet waste. Please "pack it in, pack it out" and Leave No Trace, thanks!
