Trail Overview

Follow this wide, meandering trail through the open countryside that ends with a spectacular view of the Green River and Hey Joe Canyon. A fun side trip is available if you want to experience Cliff Hanger Arch and take a short hike.

Difficulty

Easy. Wide road until the end. Mostly dirt and sand with a little slickrock mixed in. Ruts and occasional washouts possible. We call the optional side trip to the arch 'moderate,' but a careful driver should be able to make it with little trouble in a stock, high-clearance 4-wheel-drive SUV.

History

Take a few extra minutes to see Dubinky Well, just 0.2 mile north of the start. It was originally built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and provides water for livestock grazing. The windmill is larger than normal to facilitate the extradeep 500-ft. well. Source: Kiosk at site.
