Sego Canyon

What To See And Do: Sego Canyon contains three culturally distinct styles of rock art: Fremont, Ute and Barrier-style. A well preserved ghost town and ruins of a coal mine are located nearby. Visitors are advised to plan for at least a half day to explore this exciting area.

How To Get There: To reach the rock art panels, take Exit 187 off I-70, proceed on State Highway 94 through Thompson, and continue driving approximately three miles to Sego Canyon. Major rock art panels are visible from the road.

To Reach the Ghost Town of Sego: Drive 1/2 mile further up canyon on a maintained gravel road until you reach a fork in the road. Turn right at turn-off to Sego Canyon. The cemetery is seen immediately to the right. Keep heading up the road about another mile, and the ruins come into view. The town site is on private property, you are welcome to drive up and see the ruins. Just respect the land and structures.
