Where is Boulder, Utah?
Boulder is a small town in Southern Utah just 27 miles Northeast of Escalante and Canyon Country Lodge. Its small population, which is just over a couple hundred, is very friendly and welcoming to all. Everyone enjoys living amid the endless adventure of incredible public lands, immaculate national forest and the amazing Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument. Boulder takes its name from nearby Boulder Mountain, a vast timbered plateau of the Dixie National Forest that is above 11,000 feet.
Calf Creek Falls is a great hike for everyone and is located between Escalante and Boulder. It can get a little hot on the 3 mile hike to the waterfalls in the summer months, but is well worth it once you get there. While you’re driving through, make sure to stop and get your grub on at the Hell’s Backbone Grill. Highway 12 travelers rave about the food and the service.
