Hero: North Salt Wash Point
small-sr Icon

Deep within the San Rafael Swell, the Salt Wash joins the San Rafael River at a scenic remote canyon overlook. This moderate 4x4 trail travels 7.5 miles to a spectacular overlook of this river junction. The rocky and dirt two-track crosses over desert meadows and along the edge of the Little Grand Canyon. The trail requires high clearance and 4x4 for the numerous rocky ledges and soft sand found along the route. Camping is limited to a few campsites along the edge of the cliffs at the end. It's worth the drive if you desire a private camping experience with breathtaking views.
