The Grand Staircase is located in South-Central Utah and is a series of plateaus that descend from Bryce Canyon toward the Grand Canyon. Because of its desert terrain, spring and fall are the most desirable times to visit this extensive network of slot canyons and slick rock. There are a variety of magnificent sights to see across this 1.9 million acre monument, and the colors and forms of the sandstone are something you don’t want to miss. Hiking trails, camping and ATV trails are all part of this must see experience.
Free. Some permits are required for different activities such as backpacking and overnight camping which are free of charge and can be obtained at the Escalante National Monument visitors center.
