Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Grand-Staircase-Escalante-National-Monument-Paria-Outpost-Utah-1There are a variety of photogenic places in the Southwestern region of the Grand Staircase National Monument near our location. Our most popular photo and hiking include the following areas:


Wahweap Hoodos (White Ghosts)

Grand-Staircase-Escalante-National-Monument-Wahweap-Hoodoos-Paria-Outpost-Utah-1The most famous hoodoos in the area. This is a morning shot unless you shoot in the shade. It is a 4 mile hike each way but flat.

Sidestep Canyon

Grand-Staircase-Escalante-National-Monument-Sidestep-Canyon-Paria-Outpost-Utah-1Less known and less visited, this area has the most hoodoos in the entire area and we think it is better than the Wahweap Hoodos – much, much more to see. Three and a half miles of hiking each way, not flat. We rate this as good as the Coyote Buttes and White Pocket, but it is a hike.

 The Rimrocks

Grand-Staircase-Escalante-National-Monument-Rimrocks-Paria-Outpost-Utah-1Less walking to see hoodo0s almost as good as the aforementioned locations. Thirty minutes walking and a little bit of semi-steep scrambling to see 100-plus hoodoos.

Yellow Rock/Cockscomb Area

Grand-Staircase-Escalante-National-Monument-Yellow-Rock-Paria-Outpost-Utah-1The Yellow Rock is  famous photo destination that requires a fairly steep thirty minute climb, but once up there you can spend the day hiking easily to more good stuff. Hackberry Canyon bisects the Yellow Rock area from the Castle Rock area which is a similar climb containing more than a day’s worth of more interesting formations.

Wire Pass/Buckskin Gulch Area

Grand-Staircase-Escalante-National-Monument-Wirepass-Buckskin-Gulch-Paria-Outpost-1The best slot canyons in our area, the Wire Pass joins the Buckskin Gulch in a thirty minute walk and then continues down the Buckskin Gulch for twelve more miles. We often combine a trip to White Pocket with a hike into the Wire pass/Buckskin Gulch. We also do hiking shuttles for those hiking the entire 21 miles from Wire Pass to the Whitehouse Campground near the Paria Ranger Station and down to Lee’s Ferry as well.

Driving Tours

For those wanting more driving than hiking, we can tour the best of the Cottonwood Road as well as the Smoky Mountain Road, the wildest road in the area that climbs a long set of switchbacks to the top of the mountain to the best view of Lake Powell and the entire area as well as a location where smoke from deep underground coal fires vents out of the ground.

We can combine the tours as you desire within time limitations and considerations, but will endeavor to show you as much as we can in a day’s time.
