Hero: Poseys Trail
small-sr Icon
William Posey was a Paiute chief who led one of Utah's last conflicts between white settlers and natives. A skirmish occurred along Comb Ridge as the Paiute's attempted to flee westward along and then down Comb Ridge. Today Posey's Trail is a scenic drive along the top of Comb Ridge. Beginning off Cottonwood Wash, the trail passes several canyons with campsites and, if you know how to get down there, cliff dwellings at the bottom. The trail turns north along the apex of Comb Ridge with amazing views down the monocline and across Cedar Mesa. This first of two campsites along the ridgeline can support two to three vehicles and has a sandstone slab table right out of the Flintstones. The other campsite is at the southern end of the road. There's not much level ground there, but enough space for two or three vehicles. The site has great views as well.
