Traverse along the Book Cliffs with this remote gateway into Utah's most isolated wilderness. The Book Cliffs are the longest continuous cliffs on the continent. Thompson Bench Road transports you along the first tier of these towering cliffs. The trail travels along the edge of numerous canyon overlooks and epic campsites perched on the rim. The Book Cliffs loom just out of reach along the highways from Price, Utah, east to Grand Junction, CO. This region has been protected from development for decades. It lays claim to being one of the least explored regions in the United States. There are still undocumented cliff dwellings and petroglyphs being found to this day in the Floy, Flume, Coal, Desolation Canyons, and other Wilderness Study Areas that make up this region. The cliff system is comprised of multiple tiers of dramatic geological layers acting as a natural barrier to reaching the uninhabited interior.
