Overview

Wash roads in Utah are common, but this one is really a nice treat. Entering from the West side of the San Rafael Swell, the North Fork of Coal Wash is an easy but scenic way into the iconic network of trails this area is known for. Also along its borders is Swasey's Arch, a massive stone structure reminding you just how small we really are in this world. Be sure to take some time to get out or enjoy the sights along the way as you wind your way down this awesome sandy wash.
