Hero: Tusher Canyon
small-aa Icon
East of the Green River, Tusher Canyon is the first trail used to access the expansive Book Cliffs. As you approach the mountains from the river basin, the trail leads through towering cliffs that continually close in on you. The Book Cliffs are the longest continuous cliffs on the continent. They 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 and 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 Desolation Canyon Wilderness Study Area. The cliff system is comprised of multiple tiers, each acting as a natural barrier to reaching the uninhabited interior. Tusher Canyon travels up to the first tier of this geographic wonder.
