Negro Bill Canyon WSA (7,260 acres)

Negro Bill Canyon WSA

Negro Bill Canyon includes a perennial stream within a canyon bordered by sheer walls of Navajo sandstone.  Morning Glory Natural Bridge, located just outside of the WSA on State Land, is the main destination for hikers.  A ribbon of riparian vegetation follows the stream within the canyon.  Above the canyon, there is a sparse covering of pinyon-juniper vegetation and large expanses of barren Navajo sandstone domes and fins. 

Location: Northeast of Moab. The mouth of Negro Bill Canyon is accessible from Utah State Highway 128.  The Sand Flats Road provides access to the upper portion of the WSA.
