The Best Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Hikes 

This guidebook covers the original 1.88 million acres of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah. The area was designated in 1996 to protect its natural wonders and preserve the area for scientific research. In 2017, the monument was trimmed to 1 million acres, reducing protections around some of the world’s most geologically diverse landscapes. The hikes featured in this book range from family-friendly day hikes to multi-day backpacking trips that will excite the most adventurous of spirits and will educate readers about the importance of protecting public lands, visiting sensitive areas with respect, and considering low-impact recreation as a pillar of multi-use policy for enhanced conservation. Contributions from archaeologist R.E. Burrillo, paleontologist Katja Knoll, and author David Roberts.
