Views for days is the story of this trail. This trail is tucked away in the western side of the San Rafael Swell but needs to be added to the bucket list if you are nearby. Whether you have seen the formations of the Swell, or you are new to this area, you will be amazed at what you can see from the bench. Off to the east, you will overlook the Reds Canyon trail. To the north, you can see Sagebrush Bench and Devil's Point. To the west, you will overlook Link Flats and Cat Canyon, and to the south, you will be looking toward the Lucky Strike Mine and the south end of Reds Canyon where Muddy Creek is flowing. This trail is also an incredible place to camp, providing solitude from the busier areas of the Swell due to the inability of the RV's and big trailers to make it back here. Although not known as an International Dark Sky Park itself, the San Rafael Swell is a star-gazers paradise. Be sure to spend some time checking out what this area has to offer!
