North Road is also known as Sheiks Flat Road for the broad open area near its intersection with Highway 261. This easy trail provides access to Sheiks Canyon, part of the Grand Gulch drainage on Cedar Mesa. The canyons on Cedar Mesa, including Sheiks, are littered with ancient cliff dwellings, granaries, and rock art. The road also offers nice views of Bears Ears. There are two nice campsites about midway on the trail. Bears Ears National Monument now requires fees for some activities.
