Trail Overview

You'll find some extreme drop-offs and phenomenal views on this trail to the Vampire Mine. Give yourself extra time to do the side-loop that takes you through Slot Canyon. This area offers some good camping areas and is open to unlicensed ATVs and UTVs.

Difficulty

Difficult: Extremely narrow shelf road with loose gravel. Climb to mine is steep and rocky. One obstacle at start of trail has no bypass. We recommend modified vehicles with lockers and high clearance. Don't go alone.
