What maps and guidebooks are available and where:
The Nine Mile Canyon Byway is covered by the following maps:
The Castle Country Travel Council, as well as the Price BLM Office, distributes information on Nine Mile including bike rides in the area. "The Pioneer Saga of the NINE MILE ROAD", by H. Bert Jenson is an historic guide linked to numbered posts along the Byway. It is available from the BLM Vernal Office, the Field House of Natural History, and the Duchesne County Area Chamber of Commerce. Nine Mile Canyon is described in "Utah: Scenic Byways and Backways", a publication of the Utah Travel Council and cooperating agencies. Privately- produced guides are available at the CEU Prehistoric Museum and various locations in Price and Wellington.
Where to find help in the event of a medical emergency or vehicle breakdown:Visitors must take responsibility for themselves in this remote Byway. There are no public telephones and private landowners should only be disturbed in extreme emergencies. However, the owners of the Nine Mile Ranch have offered to render assistance. Messages may be relayed by flagging down BLM and County officials, mineral personnel or other visitors. Search and rescue actions are the responsibility of the Carbon and Duchesne Sheriff's Departments.
