Reviews

Neat rock formations, similar to checkerboard mesa in Zion or the Vermilion Cliffs of the Paria. The drive to get there is part of the adventure with drop-offs and rough spots. The first part of the hike is basically down a dirt road but if you’re there in the right season (early spring, May-ish) it’s got blooming cacti among the juniper and pinyon pines. Once you reach the edge it opens up to some really nice views and you can sort of choose your own adventure among the candy cliffs, look for the cairns to get back “on track”. It can be a little difficult to navigate back to the main trail so I’d take some mental images or you’ll be searching the sandy areas for reassuring footprints. This is a pretty and unique adventure away from the main Utah attractions.
