Hole in the Rock is large crevice cut in the sandstone cliffs of Glen Canyon. The crevice was used as a thru-route for westward expansionists during the 1800’s. The crevice was registered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
From land, hole in the Rock is accessible via the primitive Hole-in-the-Rock Road. Find the road off UT-12, 4.5 miles east of Escalante. The trail is 55 miles, and is well marked. From water, the bottom of the canyon is accessible from Buoy 66.
Upon completion, 250 people, 83 full-sized wagonss, and over 1,000 head of livestock descended this canyon to access the river.
The road was only used for one year before it was replaced by the easier crossing point at Hall’s Crossing.
