Hole in the Rock Rd- Escalante to Dry Fork Slots

Dirt route on BLM200, Escalante, Kane County, Utah

"Nice road down to Dry Fork Slots, continues South to "Hole-in-the-Rock" but conditions get more challenging. Good slots to explore at Dry Fork Slots. Don't miss the 1/4 mile side trip in to see Devil's Garden also. Avoid in wet conditions. Always check road conditions at BLM office. Can be easy or impossible depending on weather and mud."
