As you leave Escalante on Scenic Byway 12, you come to the Head of Rocks overlook. From this overlook you get a wide view of sandstone slick rocks leading down to the Escalante river. The overlook also includes the Old Sheffield Road Hoodoos.

Spencer Flat Road leaves Route 12 just below the overlook and heads off to the west onto Little Spencer Flat and Big Spencer Flats. The flats are on the bluff looking the Escalante River.
