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.

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
