Escalante Petrified Forest State Park

Around two miles north of the town of Escalante, this state park is famous for its stone trees. Visitors can hike a one-mile loop through the petrified forest, winding up the side of the mesa to its top, where most of the fossilized wood can be found. Also on this spot is the Wide Hollow Reservoir—popular for boating, fishing, and water sports—as well as a developed campground with RV sites and a picnic area. When you’re done exploring outdoors, head to the visitor center, where you can view plant and marine specimens, dinosaur fossils that are over 100 million years old, and of course more petrified wood.
