Hero: Mineral Canyon Road
small-sr Icon

The steep rock canyon walls and surrounding desert landscapes that line Mineral Canyon Road are reminiscent of panoramic images from the Old Wild West. This is the natural elegance of Utah at its best. Starting near the end of Mineral Bottom Road, Mineral Canyon Road follows this gorgeous canyon for 1.6 miles. Although evidence of mining activity is sparse, Mineral Canyon was once the site of uranium mines in the 1950s. Along the Green River near the trailhead of Mineral Canyon Road is a small sandy airstrip occasionally used by backcountry pilots seeking adventure.

Heavy rain and high water from the nearby Green River can limit access to the Mineral Canyon. Be prepared for the potential of extreme backcountry conditions.
