Hero: Causeway
small-sr Icon
The Causeway runs across the spine of the Abajo Mountains of the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The road's name comes from a bridge across a rocky gorge where the mountains fall way on both sides of the trail. The view from this spot on the trail is never-ending. The Causeway also crosses under the Chippean Rocks, spectacular white sandstone formations towering above the road. Fall brings out dramatic color from golden quaking aspens and bigtooth maples. There are abundant dispersed camping opportunities. At the eastern end of the trail is Nizhoni Campground for those wanting a few more amenities. The western end of the Causeway connects to Elk Ridge and South Cottonwood Road.
