Highlights

Highlight: Round Knoll
Round Knoll is a worth-while, and fairly non-technical 4x4 trail located within the San Rafael Swell, a year-round playground with a large network of off-road trails. You’ll begin the trek just off of Oil Well Flat in a desolated area of open plains featuring a beautiful backdrop of towering canyon walls. The further in you travel, the more dodging and dipping is to be dealt as you weave through surrounding junipers, pinyon pines, and a variety of small shrubs. There are a couple of climbs up some mildly steep, and rock filled slopes, eventually wrapping up and around the small knoll, creating a scenic loop connecting with The Wickiup.
