Explore the Escalante

Escalante River Road - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Escalante river arm off of Lake Powell is a great place to explore. From the Escalante, you can take an easy hike to the natural stone arch at Davis Gulch. The Escalante river arm is the second largest river arm, containing numerous side canyons to explore.

The Escalante is accessible from Buoy 68, and is about an 8 hour boat ride from Bullfrog Marina. Be cautious in this river arm as there are no channel markers. Additionally, be careful under overhanging alcoves as rocks are prone to falling.

Magnificent

The Escalante is absolute stunning. The walls can rise hundreds of feet on either side of the channel, and the water is unbelievably blue at points, especially for a lake. Absolutely go and check this place out of you get the chance!
