Nowadays, getting away from everything is undoubtedly becoming more difficult. Especially if you want a private campsite with a decent view. Far back in the San Rafael Desert, the BLM has been hard at work placing new signage on old trails leading to remote locations. This particular little trail leads to a camp area with beautiful views of the San Rafael River carving through the canyon rocks. The site is a little rough, but the sense of aloneness is deep. If you made it this far, you'd be fine driving on this bumpy out-and-back trail. Reaching the camp only takes about 30 minutes from Lower San Rafael Road.
