Scenic Byway 12
Calf Creek Recreation Area (UT)
About 15 miles east of Escalante, Scenic Byway 12 descends to the Calf Creek Recreation Area. Here, wade in the creek, have a picnic, or take the 5.5 mile round-trip nature hike to Lower Calf Creek Falls. The sandy trail ends with water cascading 126 feet from the rock walls above into a pool surrounded by shade trees. Calf Creek Recreation Area also has a BLM campground and a picnic area.
