Escalante, on Scenic Highway #12 in the Garfield County, is small ranching town along the Escalante River. In all directions is wild, uninhabited and beautiful land. Though it has only 850 residents it is the largest town for 70 miles around. To the north of town is the high alpine wilderness of the Aquarius Plateau and Boulder Mountain; to the south and east lie rugged red rock desert canyons of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Located half way between Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks, Escalante is a convenient place to stay and explore the local attractions and recreational opportunities. A bed and breakfast inn is a great base from which to explore the Hole-In-The-Rock Road, the Escalante Petrified Forest State Park, Calf Creek Recreation area, and the Anasazi State Park in nearby Boulder. While most attractions may be reached by car, hiking and off-road vehicle trails abound.
The Escalante region was inhabited by roaming bands of Native Americans for at least 5000 years. With the introduction of agriculture, settled village life began some 2000 years ago. Until the Mormon settlers moved to the area in the 1870’s to farm and ranch the newly “discovered” land, numerous Native American cultures used the area. The remains of those cultures may be found throughout the area. Now the town of Escalante features tidy rows of well kept homes and a sleepy main street with a few cafes, grocery stores, activity outfitters, motels and B & B’s.
