Overview

The Jackass Benches are a series of small mesas on the eastern side of the San Rafael Swell just west of Green River, Utah. They are named for the wild burros that roam the area. This offroad trail runs along the east side of the benches and is a nice alternate route to return from Swasey's Leap. It also provides access to the trailheads for Sulpher Springs and Black Dragon Wash. There is amazing high desert scenery and a lot of wide, open spaces. Plus, if you're lucky, you'll get to see the wild burros!
