Devils Garden provides a brief introduction to the kind of slickrock walking and routefinding over a trail-less landscape typical of most backcountry routes in the Escalante region. Since the landscape features, such as pour-offs and cliffs, are in miniature here, obstacles are minor.
Devils Garden features a four-site picnic area with pit toilets, tables, fire pits, and elevated grills. No water is available. Bring your own firewood or charcoal, since firewood collecting is not allowed at the site. Dogs must be leashed at all times in Devils Garden. Although children will enjoy wandering with their parents here, remind your children to avoid trampling the coarse yet fragile desert vegetation.
Miniature domes, tiny narrows carved by rivulets of infrequent runoff, and diminutive pour-offs are among the features you’ll see during your wanderings. There is a small arch spanning a gully that can be found by following the upper, left-hand trail beginning at the picnic site. The lower trail skirts the base of Devils Garden’s erosion formations, passing delicate Mano Arch and an array of red-and-beige-toned sandstone hoodoos and mushroom rocks that rise from the pinyon- and juniper-studded bench. Other hiker-made trails crisscross the area
