Explore a Manmade Geyser in Utah
Utah › Crystal Geyser, Utah

- Nice side stop on way to Moab
- Quick visit is all you need
Four and a half miles from the town of Green River, Utah, Crystal Geyser is one of the few manmade geysers as a result of the area's historical mining industry. This cold-water geyser usually erupts every eight to 20 hours.
Getting to the geyser is easy and the site can be accessed by car on a washboard gravel and paved road. Take the exit for UT-19 and head west away from Green River. Turn left on to BLM - 325 / Area 51 Road and follow it until you hit Crystal Geyser Safari / Little Valley Rd. Follow this gravel road until you arrive at the river; here you'll see the geyser in a small turnaround area.
Once at the geyser, you'll find open camping, no bathrooms, and no water unless you filter it from the river. The area is a popular spot for floating Labryinth Canyon so expect to see people around.

Mountain Bike Catherine's Pass
Utah / Alta Summer Road
This ride isn't for the faint of heart. It's seriously tough. It's one of the most scenic and rewarding rides you'll ever do, though. The climbing is steep and the descents are rocky.
