unpaved roads in Escalante

by wendyjol Online Now Jan 8, 2004 at 12:26 AM

On my Rand McNally road map there is an unpaved road marked from highway 12 (Cannonville) to highway 89 , passing Kodachrome SP, Grosvenor Arch and Cottonwood Canyon. Can you drive this road by a normal rental car? How long will this road take ? Are there any hiking trails starting from this road, which are not too long (we are travelling with two kids)? Thanks Wendy

    Hi Wendy, I see you haven't had any replies to your question yet. I used to live in Utah and I found that many of the unpaved roads were very difficult for a regular car. (I know - I took some pretty risky chances a few times.) However, if you are renting a 4 wheel drive, it will be much easier. I don't know anything about this specific road, but if it were me, I wouldn't take the chance with a regular car. It sounds like you are planning fantastic trip! Karen
