Lower Calf Creek Falls Hike – Escalante, Utah, US

Escalante is a city in central Garfield County, Utah, United States, located along Utah Scenic Byway 12 in the south central part of the state.

Calf Creek Falls refers to a pair of perennial waterfalls on the Calf Creek in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in central Garfield County, Utah, that total 214 feet (65 m).

The two tiers of the falls are roughly 2.5 miles (4.0 km) apart. While both tiers are accessible by trail (with both trailheads just off Utah State Route 12), there is no direct access between the tiers.

Upper Calf Creek Falls is an 88-foot (27 m) plunge and is much less known, as it requires a 2-mile (3.2 km) roundtrip scramble from the western ridgeline.

Lower Calf Creek Falls is an 126-foot (38 m) cascade and is very popular, because it can be reached by an easy hike on a 5.7-mile (9.2 km) roundtrip trail.
