In the early 20th century, a Utah photographer captured an image he labeled "Buried Forest." Perhaps he thought the large circles in the cliff face were petrified logs. We now know that to be false, but they are visually stunning, naturally occurring rock formations. The recent rediscovery of the "Buried Forest" concretions gave folks in Carbon County a new interpretation site. A hiking trail with signage explains how these tubes formed. The road from the highway and all the main roads in the region are well maintained. They are rough gravel, but there are no washouts or serious washboards. Camping is wide open and free, but the only established site was at the hiking trailhead. It's very exposed to the wind and visitors to the interpretive site. The hike to the site of the tubes is 1 mile.
