Devil's Garden seems to be an often overlooked gem. A short side trip from the Hole in the Rock road leads to a unique landscape of hoodoos and arches. This is one not to miss if you're in the area. Essentially a roadside attraction, visiting should be accessible to move everyone. A picnic area and pit toilet make this a good spot to have a family picnic.

Getting There

Head east out of the town of Escalante about 5 miles on highway 12 until the well signed Hole in the Rock road.

  • Turn onto the Hole In The Rock Road and reset your odometer. ( 12S 453596mE 4175370mN / N37° 43' 28" W111° 31' 36")
  • Travel down the Hole in the Rock road for 11.8 miles to the signed Devil's Garden turn off on the south side of the road. ( 12S 463802mE 4160168mN / N37° 35' 16" W111° 24' 36")
  • From here, it's 1/4 mile drive to a parking area with a couple of picnic tables, and pit toilet. No camping allowed at Devil's Garden proper. Any vehicle should be able to reach the trailhead in most conditions. ( 12S 463573mE 4159849mN / N37° 35' 06" W111° 24' 45")

Route

From the parking area, an information sign describes the formations. Short, well traveled dirt trails lead in and around the various towers and hoodoos. Several arches and unique colors lend themselves to great photographs. This is a fun place for photographers, kids, or those that are kids at heart.
