Residing near the Dominguez/Escalante National Conservation Area south of Grand Junction, this route combines Escalante Overlook Road with BLM 74 and 74A, part of the Uncompahgre Field Office. Starting from the north end, the route quickly leaves Highway 50 and offers views of Escalante Canyon and the Gunnison River below. There are a half dozen campsites dotted along the rim of the canyon. The road does have a few rocky portions that would make for a slow go in a lower-clearance vehicle. The southern end connects to Escalante Canyon Road.
