USA Head of the Rocks Overlook
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Vast view overlooking the canyons of Escalante. A colorful sea of sandstone, buttes and mesas. Hole in the Rock Road is just a few miles west of this spot. There are numerous adventures to be found all along the mud/dirt/gravel road. Be advised that after the first 12 miles or so, the wash boarding on the road is pretty bad.
Pleaseto see the photography tips.
From Escalante High School in Escalante, Utah, drive east on Utah Highway 12, 8.9 miles (14.3 Km) to the large paved overlook parking lot. There’s room for a dozen or more vehicles but I’ve been there several times when the lot was empty.
