Nestled in the foothills of the Book Cliffs is the little-known Crescent Canyon, which travels through and above a very colorful desert landscape. At the base of the ledge road, a towering spire marks the entrance to a region rarely visited by tourists. As you wind your way through the picturesque canyon, you'll be driven to stop along the trail's edge and get out of the vehicle to enjoy the pristine wilderness. The trail climbs up to the first tier of the ominous and expansive Book Cliffs within the Floy Canyon Wilderness Study Area. There are very few visitors or signs of civilization within this seemingly undisturbed part of Utah. Connect this trail with many others that traverse across the cliffs to the east toward Colorado.
