Lower Price River Canyon is one of those trails where you think, "Since I'm here, I might as well check it out," followed by being pleased you did. With easy access from Highway 191, it is passable in 2WD drive vehicles with high ground clearance and durable tires. The trail twists past private ranch land marked by old tires before primitive camping begins, and you enter the Desolation Canyon Wilderness. Price River comes into view as the canyon walls close in. Sometimes, you drive on steep, narrow shelf roads high above the muddy river. The trail is bouncy but reasonably well-maintained to the dead end at the old, closed river crossing. The real reason to venture out and back is the petroglyphs and pictographs hidden along the canyon walls. There are two sites, one with many hidden gems on the rocks.
