Escalante Petrified Forest State Park


Along the shores of Wide Hollow Reservoir lies beside a beautiful campground where you can find trailheads through the stunning Escalante Petrified Forest State Park.  The word on the trails is that the forest is haunted and the petrified wood find must be left behind or bad luck might follow you home.  The underlying message is, of course, that the colorful opalized wood should not be taken but rather left for the enjoyment of those who follow you.
