Metate Arch D'S Garden
Amazing arches, tunnels to crawl under, ledges to climb in, cracks to squeeze through. It is just a playground for all ages!
This Arch's name is Mano arch, but I think it is just as interesting and unique as the Metate Arch that is at the top.
360 Video at D.vils Garden includes Metate Arch and Mano Arch.

To find this area you drive from Escalante US 12 for 5 miles east to Hole in the Road Road. There is a sign, but it can easily be missed so watch carefully. It is a dirt road and as long as it hasn't rained recently it is accessible even to low clearance vehicles for this hike. You drive 12.7 miles down Hole in the Rock Road to a marked road on your right that will take you to Devil's Garden. The road is a little worse here, but still ok for you only need to drive 0.3 miles down it to parking area. This area is fun, for there is no single path to follow here. There are lots of paths, just take one and see what treasures you find. There are picnic tables here so you can pull out the lunches. There is also a restroom. If you get disoriented, just walk west and then then walk North and you will be back at the parking lot. There are cool mazes to wander through and arches, and even some shorter ones you can get up on top and see from a birds eye view.

My first pick today is a Hiking Jacket. I did this hike last year in January, and it was such a great day. My husband was so intrigued by the place we went back a few months later. Grab a jacket and head South. It is amazing hiking weather down there!
