Bluff Stories and Tips

Bluff historic old town

The rebuild school/church Photo, Bluff, Utah

Bluff is located just north of Monument Valley, and it is the ideal basecamp for exploring sights as Natural Bridges, Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley, and do some serious kayaking and rafting on the San Juan River. The little town is almost deserted, but you will easy find some friendly locals to guide you to the highlights of the surrounding country.

The little village of Bluff was once founded by the Hole In Rock mormon pioneers, they blasted their way through the mountains near Escalante, crossed Glenn Canyon (nowadays Lake Powel) and settled down in this little green oasis of the desert called Bluff. Its setting is stunningly, from the red-rock pinnacles known as the Navajo twins to the cottonwoods that line the San Juan Rivert. Ancestral Puebloan petroglyphs can be found along Highway 163. The town also has a couple of nice restaurants, but don't expect gourmet food!
