Hero: Point Lookout
small-sr Icon
Point Lookout spurs off Slickhorn running 7.2 miles through the southern portion of Cedar Mesa to end at the border of the Grand Gulch ISA Study Area. Along the way are several nice campsites, a very interesting crossing of a small drainage, an old cattle corral, open grasslands, and a dense juniper-pinion forest. While the trail ends at the ISA Study area, the old jeep trail makes an excellent hike to Point Lookout and views of John's Canyon. Bonus trivia question: How many cedars are on Cedar Mesa? None! Early European settlers were familiar with European cedars but not the western juniper, two different species of trees that look similar. Thus, many geographic names erroneously include cedar.
