Getting There

The Fremont Granaries are tucked away in the cliffs and are located on both sides of the hwy. You head west from the parking lot to the river, turn left following the river downstream. The first granary is located immediately on the right. From their hike downstream, under the bridge and continue to the first major draw on the left. The granary will be at the head of the draw. Then return upstream back to the parking lot or continue on to the Phipps Arch Trail.

Parking and restrooms at the Escalante River Trailhead.

The prominently signed Escalante River Trailhead is located west of UT 12 immediately north of the Escalante River bridge, 14.6 miles south of the UT 12/Burr Trail Road junction in Boulder, and 13.3 miles east of Escalante.

Must have gotten lost- the trail was no longer viable after 0.7 miles, we walked down the river until it was useless. You see some granaries, But overall a hard to follow hike. The Escalante trail head - if you go right (instead of left for this hike) - you go two miles and see a natural bridge

We showed up not expecting to do this trail. We did spot a granary totally by accident not realizing the name of the trail had the word 'granary' in it! Kind of a nice hike by a river. Wash out for flash flooding in the season.

First to Review

really nice. you can see the first granary standing on the southeast corner of the bridge from the blacktop, so this would be one of the four wheelchair accessible ruins in the area (along with the overlook west of Escalante, the Anasazi Museum, and the roadside granary east of Capitol Reef towards Hanksville) - second granary by the river not wheelchair accessible
