Escalante Panorama

The unpaved Cottonwood Canyon Road is a cross-country route, starting just past Kodachrome Basin State Park and ending near milepost 18 US 89. Some sections of the road are rather steep and narrow, with overhanging rocks, although 2WD cars usually can make the 47 mile journey, for a few hours after heavy rains the route may be impassable even by 4WD vehicles. The surrounding land has much of interest to explore; slot canyons, arches, springs and endless colorful, eroded rocky scenery.
