Featured CMC Press Book

The Best Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Hikes

by Morgan Sjogren and Michael VerSteeg 

This guidebook covers the original 1.88 million acres of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument designated in 1996 to protect its natural wonders and preserve the area for scientific research. In 2017, the monument was trimmed to 1 million acres, reducing protections around some of the world’s most geologically diverse landscapes. The hikes featured in this book range from family-friendly day hikes to multi-day backpacking trips that will excite the most adventurous of spirits and will educate readers about the importance of protecting public lands, visiting sensitive areas with respect, and considering low-impact recreation as a pillar of multi-use policy for enhanced conservation.

To order a copy, please visit our store or call 303-279-3080.



About Us

Founded in 1912, the CMC exists to serve and educate Coloradans, encouraging them to become respectful and responsible recreators.
