North Caineville Mesa Trail
The trail ascends over 1300 feet right from the side of UT Highway 24 to
the top of the mesa. Along the way it runs along the spines of the Mancos badlands up into the Ferron sandstone cap on the mesa itself. The trail is marked by cairns. The hike takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour each way and is about 2 miles long.
The trail begins at the old cement mixer – a local fixture. To get there, drive east along Highway 24 from Capitol Reef National Park about 12 miles. Look for the cement truck on the north side of the road.
