Compared to many of the other parks and hikes in Utah, this is totally unregulated and therefore awesome. It's on Bureau of Land Management Land and you'll miss it if you don't know what you're looking for. It's literally a turn off the side of...More

So the I-70 drive through Utah is one of my favorites and the Black Dragon Canyon is a great stop along the way to stretch your legs or get some exercise. Beautiful scenery and history at the rest stop but beware of the rest room,...More

Enjoyed the trail though challenging in spots. Take more water than you think you will need. Would like to try from the top.

The attraction here is a short hike to a rock art panel. After that hike up and over the slick rock mound. Gorgeous.

Great site, worth visiting, however directions could be a bit more detailed. Only found out about when I stayed at River Terrace in Green River

If you happen to find yourself in the Green River UT area, this hike is really lovely. The hike is mostly flat, following the dry river wash through the canyon. There are pictographs about a quarter of a mile into the canyon on the right,...More

Instead of going to the Black Dragon Trail we took the left just prior to the Black Dragon sign simply because it was a much shorter hike. It was just as pretty of a hike as Black Dragon, Spirit Arch leads you back to a...More
