Trail Information

Highlights

A true hidden treasure in the Utah desert. This area is rich with both ancient and recent history. It is interesting that no more than a few hundred yards apart there are Anasazi ruins that date at nearly 1000 years old and remnants of an old west trading post dating at 130 years old. This mix of historical timelines is not common to find so immediately close together. Add that to imposing red rock formations and the lush green San Juan river valley this is an oasis that you can walk through time visiting.

This is a very fun, scenic trail. Stop at The Rincone and walk to the river beach and have lunch. Beautiful, with a nice cool breeze. The River House is very interesting and fun to take pictures of. It is more than a 2 trail rating in a couple areas, particularly Waypoint 6, the fork you take a left on.

What a great trail with tons to see. Don't miss the turn off at the bottom of the hill off the highway. We parked the RV trailering the jeep down the dirt road and to the left. There was a nice spot to turn arround. The trail weaves arround the sage brush and through the creek bed, nothing too soft. Saw a few Razor's out there, but we had fun in the 2007 JKU. Old traiding post site, ruins, wagon train route (with insiping inscription at the top), and the petroglyph wall. Lots to see and a few signs to read. Tottally the best on a whim little trail ever with great sights to see.

Visited this trail during a 4 day Overlanding trip to this area. The weather was great but we were suprise to see water present in the creek along the trail. The bottom was solid and did not present any issues getting through.

Drove this trail on day 1 of a 3-week overlanding trip through southeastern Utah. Unfortunately, we were rushed and didn't get to hike to the petroglyph panel beyond the end of the trail, so we came back on the last day of the trip to run it again. The wash has lots of sand and plenty of confusing casual use trails but most of them end up at the same place. The River House is a good ruin and the large panel beyond the end of the trail is definitely worth seeing. Saw a mature male black bear on the hike to the petroglyphs. Good trail!

Trail is open and in good shape. Recent moisture has made the creek bottom portions more packed than in past trips, lending to more traction.
