HOW TO GET THERE:

The quarry is located in the northern part of the San Rafael Swell,  32 miles south of Price.

FROM PRICE:  Take Hwy 10 south to the Cleveland/Elmo turnoff and follow the signs.  The last 12 miles are on graded, unpaved road. 

FROM HUNTINGTON:  Follow Hwy 10 north and take the Cleveland turnoff.  In Cleveland, go south toward the San Rafael Swell and follow the signs.  The last 13 miles are on graded, unpaved road.

The unpaved roads may be hazardous when wet.

 

NEARBY AMENITIES

A picnic area is available at the quarry.  Huntington State Park, just north of Huntington (on Hwy 10) offers camping with trailer hookups, showers, phone, and a small reservoir for fishing and boating.  Cedar Mountain Recreation Site (located near the top of Cedar Mountain), offers picnic tables, toilets and panoramic view of the San Rafael Swell.  The San Rafael Recreation Site (located by the San Rafael River), provides tent sites, toilets, tables and fire grills.

Dispersed camping is permitted on most BLM land (some areas are restricted).   Please use a portable toilet, firepan and carry in your own wood or campstove.   Keep all areas clean; even biodegradable materials such as paper can take years to deteriorate in the desert.

HIKING

The "Rock Walk" is a 1 1/2 mile interpretive foot path.  Hiking the canyons of the area is permitted.  To reduce the impact of human presence on the environment, please stay in washes (except during heavy rain storms) or rock areas.  NOTE:  Collection of vertebrate fossils including dinosaur material is illegal on all public lands.

PETS

Pets must be kept on leashes and under control at all times.  Please clean up after them.
