About the Monument
Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument’s vast and austere landscape embraces a spectacular array of scientific and historic resources. This is a high, rugged and remote region, where bold plateaus and multi-hued cliffs run for distances, defying human perspective. It was the last place in the continental United States to be mapped. These strikingly beautiful and scientifically important lands are divided into three distinct regions: the Grand Staircase, the Kaiparowits Plateau and the Canyons of the Escalante. The Monument encompasses 1.9 million acres of southern Utah canyons, cliffs and plateaus.
