Fodor's Expert Review Kodachrome Basin State Park

Escalante Park (National/State/Provincial) Fodor's Choice

Yes, it is named after the old-fashioned color photo film, and once you see it you'll understand why the National Geographic Society gave it the name. The stone spires known as "sand pipes" cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Hike any of the trails to spot some of the 67 pipes in and around the park. The short Angels Palace Trail takes you quickly into the park's interior, up, over, and around some of the badlands. Note that the oft-photographed Shakespeare Arch collapsed in April 2019, although the trail leading to it is still open.
