Explore a Manmade Geyser in Utah

Utah Crystal Geyser, Utah

Added by

Nice side stop on way to Moab. Quick visit is all you need. Historical.

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 There

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.

Pack List

  • Bug spray
  • Camera
  • Water
  • Camping gear if you're staying overnight

Crystal Geyser

While we didn't see the geyser we went by the during our family float of the Green River through Labyrinth Canyon. I can't believe the Labyrinth/Stillwater Canyon floats aren't on here yet. Spectacular!

Mountain Bike the Shafer Trail in Moab

Utah / Shafer Trailhead

The best way to ride the Shafer Trail is to bring a support vehicle (one with 4WD and decently high clearance). If you're into a sufferfest, by all means climb your way out of there.

Hike Mount Ellen in Utah's Henry Mountains

Utah / Mount Ellen Peak Trail

Mount Ellen is considered an Ultra Prominent Peak. What's that you may ask? Well, Ultra Prominent Peaks are determined by how high the summit rises above its surroundings.

Mountain Bike the Intrepid Trail System in Dead Horse Point SP

Utah / Intrepid Trails

If you're visiting Moab for some mountain biking, this is a great place to start. There's nothing too technical and plenty of route options and points to bail out if you're getting tired.
