Henry Mountains Field Station

The Henry Mountains is a well-known point of reference in southeast Utah, reaching almost 12,000 feet at the top of Mt. Ellen. Whether you enjoy big game hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, or just like to drive through the mountains, you'll find your niche in the beauty of Central Utah. The Henry Mountain Range is one of the few places in the country where a buffalo herd roams free and is also rich in geologic resources. Many universities visit the area to study the exposed geologic layers in an outdoor setting. Paleontological resources such as the Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry is a dinosaur bonebed located on federal land which to date has revealed the remains of at least 15 different dinosaurs.
