Escalante is a city in Garfield County, Utah, United States located along Utah Scenic Byway 12 (SR-12) in the south central part of the state. On the 3rd (Sat), see High Adventure and then delve into the distant past at Anasazi State Park Museum. On the 4th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: immerse yourself in nature at Kodachrome Basin State Park, stroll through Mossy Cave Trail, and then surround yourself with nature on Red Canyon Trail Rides.
