Spooky Slot Canyon Hiking Trail – Grand Staircase-Escalante

Spooky Slot Canyon Hiking Trail – Grand Staircase-Escalante

Spooky Gulch is a beautiful Slot Canyon located at Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The access takes some effort but it’s definitely worth the trip. The trailhead is located 32 miles south of the town of Escalante and the drive to the trailhead is not for the faint of souls as one has to drive 26 miles on a very uneven gravel/dirt road with some washed-out patches and bumps. Once at the trailhead, it’s another adventure to find the entrance to the slot canyon as the trail is not clearly marked. There are two slot canyons to explore: the Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulch which are located near each other and can be combined for a fun loop hike.

We started our Grand Staircase Escalante adventure in the town of Boulder, Utah where we visited the Anasazi State Park Museum: https://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/ana… and explored the landscape along the Burr Trail (which leads from Boulder to Glen Canyon), then indulged in a delicious Farm to Table dinner at Hell’s Backbone Grill: https://hellsbackbonegrill.com/

The next day we made our way along the stunning Utah Scenic Byway 12 from Boulder to Escalante, stopped at the beautiful Kiva Coffeehouse: http://kivakoffeehouse.com/ for breakfast and enjoyed stunning view. From there we drove to the trailhead and hiked to Spooky Gulch and Peek-a-boo Gulch for a fun day of exploring and hiking the surrounding landscape. We fell in love with the landscape at Grand Staircase Escalante and highly recommend a visit! Thanks for subscribing to our channel!
