“Navajo sandstone and petroglyphs really shine in a beautiful valley.”— Matthew Kidd
Family Friendly Petroglyphs, easy hiking, and stunning beauty make this a great route for the whole family.
Look for the Escalante Natural Bridge along the way, as well as an Anasazi cliff dwelling slightly west of the bridge, which include petroglyphs, and a crescent shaped Escalante Natural Arch another 0.4 miles further west. This hike is ideal in the fall, e.g. early October, when yellow leaves are framed by enormous varnished sandstone walls.
