Welcome to Grand Staircase Escalante-National Monument (GSENM). Your exploration of one of the most beautiful places on Earth begins here.
The nearly one thousand miles of roads providing public access to Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, as well as access to the privately-owned properties within the Monument’s boundaries, are maintained by the professional road crews of Kane and Garfield Counties. Flash floods, fallen or overgrown trees, land and rockslides all can make keeping the roads open for the travelling public a “monumental” task. As you travel roadways throughout the Monument, you may occasionally experience temporary inconveniences at sites where county road crews are conducting maintenance. Please keep in mind that the road crews are out on the ground to keep the roads accessing Monument lands safe and well maintained. If you should see something on Monument roads that you feel we should know about, please call the Monument public affairs officer at (435) 644-1209 to report your concerns to Monument leadership.
