Highlight: Buckmaster Mining District
Uranium ores in what is now known as the San Rafael district were first reported by Hess and Schaller way back in 1914. Since that time, this region of Utah has had over 6000 mines open and close. In 2015 the BLM began an ambitious task of properly inspecting and permanently closing all these dangerous sites. They removed all the harmful raw materials and structures but thankfully preserved specific areas for us to visit. Buckmaster has a wide variety of terrain to navigate while you're seeing all the unique points of interest. You can start or finish with the I-70 overlook. Plan an extended break at the old log cabin with epic views of The Swell.
