Hero: Copper Globe Mine
small-aa Icon
Located in the remote Central Utah Desert lies the San Rafael Swell. This area is known for its vast beauty and countless recreational opportunities including a large network of trails open to motorized, mechanized, equestrian, and foot travel. In the western side of the San Rafael Swell is a mine tucked away in the hills known as Copper Globe Mine. This mine was a failed copper ore mine with operations between 1900 and 1905. The quality of the ore was poor, and the material used to make the smelter melted before the ore causing the smelter to collapse. There is still plenty of evidence of the mine from large log piles to a little shack with a stove. You can spend hours exploring the area or choose to keep exploring connecting routes. Either way, you are sure to have a good time exploring the western area of the Swell.
