The rugged nature of the Escalante Basin is a major obstacle to vehicular traffic.
There is only one paved road (Highway 12) and it is the only road that crosses the
Escalante River. However, there are several good fair weather dirt and gravel roads in
the area that can be driven with any good clearance 2wd vehicle. All roads lead to
great scenery !
ROAD CONDITIONS CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME, DO NOT TRAVEL ON ANY DIRT ROAD IF RAIN
IS IN THE FORECAST !
ALWAYS MAKE LOCAL INQUIRY BEFORE TRAVELING ON ANY BACKROAD OR JEEP
