General Information

Centrally located along Scenic Byway 12, Escalante is a great place to stay when exploring Bryce Canyon Country. Escalante is surrounded by some of the most rugged and diverse scenery in the west, and is the headquarters to the 1.9-million acre Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. With the Dixie National Forest to the north and Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef and Lake Powell just a short drive away, Escalante is ideally located to experience all the region has to offer. Click here to connect to the Escalante community site.

History

Escalante was named for Franciscan missionary Silvestre Velez de Escalante, who passed through the region in 1776 during an expedition from Santa Fe, NM to Monterey, CA. The remote community was settled in 1876 by Mormon pioneers from nearby Panguitch. They designed the town on a grid system, dividing the land into equitable five-acre blocks. Each family in this farming and ranching community was also provided with 20 acres of farmland outside of town. Today, this charming town of 800, called ‘Escalant’ by locals, is home to a diverse population of ranchers, farmers, artists, and outdoor enthusiasts.
