Trail Overview

The road to Swasey Cabin is accessible by most vehicles, and provides a great spot for hiking. From the cabin, hike the road a little further to The Ice Box. Hop on your ATV or UTV and enjoy the winding road to Eagle Canyon Arch. There is an opportunity to see Native American art. Spend the day exploring the abundance of side roads.


Moderate. Narrow and rocky in places with one challenging steep spot on the north side of the freeway. Stock SUVs should have high clearance and skid plates. Lockers also beneficial.


Swasey Cabin was built in 1921 by Joe Swasey and his three brothers. They ran cattle here for decades before building the cabin. The cabin is listed on the Utah State Register of Historic Sites. Source: www.emerycounty.com.
