Hero: Skyline View / Factory Bench
small-sr Icon
West of Factory Butte is Factory Bench which hosts the uber-popular Skyline View camping area. Skyline View overlooks an otherworldly landscape of multi-hued bentonite hills. The place looks so unearthly that it hosts the Mars Research Station. Sunsets and sunrises from the campsites scattered along the edge of Factory Bench are amazing. The northernmost spur has large flat campsites and is the most popular. Smaller campsites further south offer more privacy. The BLM roads that make up this trail are ordinarily easy to drive but will become quite difficult after heavy rains.
