The Best Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Hikes


by Morgan Sjogren and Michael VerSteeg

  • Up to date with current events, boundaries, and public land information
  • Descriptive trail guides for 25 hikes with color photos and color maps
  • Detailed natural history and archaeology

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.
