Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument spans nearly 1.9 million acres of America’s public lands. From its spectacular Grand Staircase of cliffs and terraces, across the rugged Kaiparowits Plateau, to the wonders of the Escalante River Canyons, the Monument’s size, resources, and remote character provide extraordinary opportunities for geologists, paleontologists, archeologists, historians, and biologists in scientific research, education, and exploration.

Fun little hike. Bring camera and water.

Great hike not too much trafficked to explore slot canyons beyond the touristy 'Antelope canyons'. The entrance is hard to find. The hike itself is difficult as there are narrow and steep parts where you need 5 grade climbing techniques. Only advised with light luggage. Take plenty of water. Be aware of rattlesnakes.

This was much more difficult than we anticipated. We backpacked through (mainly because we just needed a place to sleep), and I don't recommend it. There were some pretty steep inclines and descents, and the trail wasn't marked very well in the beginning. Pretty challenging, but fun. The slots were neat. Spooky got so narrow at one point we turned around. Just bring day packs with plenty of water.

Found this hike on accident by passing through and it ended up being really fun. Feels like you are in a different world. Great photo ops.

Best small hike ever !!!

first tried peekaboo but it was too slick to get up. Most people I watched did not make it up. Went down to Spooky instead and absolutely loved it! In some areas it was only 10 to 12 inches wide and it was so much fun squeezing through. Finished up by going all the way up Dry Fork Narrows which was surprisingly pretty cool.

Amazing hike. easy.
