Calf Creek Wetlands, Calf Creek Falls Trail, Grand Staircase-Escalante, Utah
Utah

The creek is the life force in the Calf Creek Canyon, providing home for water loving plants, insects, Brown, Brook and Rainbow trout and of course numerous birds. In mid-May, wildflowers were blooming and many species of birds were singing, continuously. I have never heard so many bird songs on any one hike before. Among others we saw a Violet Green Sparrow, Spotted Towhees, Orioles and a blue bird we think was a Steller’s jay. Calf Creek Falls is one of the best known hiking destinations in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The hike from the Calf Creek Campground to the lower falls is 6 miles round trip with minimal elevation gain. The trail follows the creek as it winds through a canyon that has a lot of visual and biological diversity. While the 126 foot Lower Calf Creek Falls is the famous destination the canyon itself is very picturesque and worthwhile. The camp ground has a Trail Guide that tells a story for each of the 14 interpretive stops on the way to the lower falls.
