Trail Overview

This is a popular wash trail just outside Green River. The track changes with each major storm so be prepared for changing conditions. You may have to pick your line through a few rock obstacles, but it is a straightforward, enjoyable trail. Don't enter if it is raining or if rain is in the forecast. This trail can be run in either direction, but west to east, or downhill, is the easiest way. The primary point of interest is an historic pictograph panel a mile or so from the east end of the canyon.

Finally got my Jeep out back together and decided to go out Buck Horn Draw to Black Dragon Wash. Wasn't bad at all, ran into a few sxs and hikers. Warm dry day, no issues.

We started at i70 and just went to the petroglyphs and turned back. There was extra water on the road before the turn into the reef. Had to go down about 100 yards of flowing stream over the road. Jeep only acted like it was going through mud once and we just pushed though in four low. 32 inch tires in 2.5 inch lift. Not sure how it looks past the petroglyphs
