Hero: Manganese Wash
small-aa Icon
All great adventures have to begin somewhere, Manganese Wash is an easy gateway to a remote region within the southern Utah desert. The route can be used as an access route to free primitive camping and to explore the numerous other 4x4 trails in the region. You can choose to camp within the unique rock formations at Waypoint 15, take a drive over to Birthing Cave or go for a swim at Gunlock Reservoir. The area was once active with mining which has resulted in a vast network of trails crisscrossing the region. The route travels through a shallow canyon before traveling through a maze of red sandstone rock formations. Connecting the route with Motoqua Road makes for an easy half-day scenic drive.
