"The Devils Garden Outstanding Natural Area is an excellent place off Hole-in-the-Rock Road for an afternoon picnic followed by an hour or so of rewarding exploration. The garden is small, covering only about 200 acres, but it is a miniature wonderland of Navajo Sandstone hoodoos, domes, narrow passages, and small arches, hidden from the view of drivers along Hole-in-the-Rock Road. Devils Garden provides a brief introduction to the kind of slickrock walking and routefinding over a trail-less landscape typical of most backcountry routes in the Escalante region. Since the landscape features, such as pour-offs and cliffs, are in miniature here, obstacles are minor."

This place is great for kids! It's not so much a trail; just a place to explore all around the area. My 20 month old son gets tired of always riding in the backpack, so he loved it when we let him down to run around. There are arches, stone tunnels, sand pits, and it's all within a quarter mile of the parking lot, which has a pit toilet and picnic tables.
