Explore the Newspaper Rock Ancient Petroglyphs
Utah › Newspaper Rock
Added by LJ Dawson
This easy access panel showcases some of the most amazing rock art this desert offers.
After leaving Moab, turn off Highway 191 on to 211. The drive will wind over the mesa tops and down into red rock canyon country. Enjoy the changing seasons whether the red cliffs are covered in snow or spring desert flowers are blooming.
Watch for cattle as this is open range country. Also watch for rain and snow because this road can turn gnarly fast in bad weather. It continues to Canyonlands National Park while passing by many other access roads and recreation areas.
Preserve and respect this ancient art.
- Lots of water
- Full gas tank (gas is only available year round in surrounding towns)

Hike the Arizona Trail: Buckskin Mountain Passage from Stateline Campground
Utah / Stateline Campground, Utah
Depending how you approach this 800 mile trail, I did the first 4 miles or last 4 miles as an out and back from Stateline Campground on the Utah/Arizona state line and the border of Vermil.
Hike to the Klondike Bluff Dinosaur Track
Utah / Klondike Bluff Road, Moab
I think these tracks are the best in Moab. Take route 191 north out of Moab for about 13 miles (mile post 142). Klondike Bluff road is on the right. If you pass the airport, you went too far.
