  • Absolutely loved it but wish there was better signage or maps from the visitor center. They have points of interest marked but no signs. Some you have to be lucky to find what you are looking for. Devil's Garden seems to be a place that you can walk wherever you want because there are no signs and no specific trails. People where walking wherever they wanted. I loved the Calf Creek Trail to the Waterfall. Busy trail but well marked.
  • Summing up this monument is impossible. It's such a large area with so much diversity that its hard to wrap your head around. That said, its incredible. If you're crossing over from AZ stop at the Big Water visitor center off hwy 89 in Big Water (yes, town name) They'll have all the current info and closures. Remember to respect the land and pack it out✌
