Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Colorado River, Castle Rocks Campground, Knowles Canyon Overlook Campground, Stay in the Wash Trail, Parallel Trail, Tina's Hill Trail, D&J Trail, Al's Trail, Brian's Trail, Rim Trail, McInnis Canyon

Last Known StatusOpen

Located near the Colorado and Utah border, this large open area offers miles of desert trails that wind through sandstone formations. The terrain consists of dirt roads, steep and rocky single track and some steep drop offs.

There are three designated campgrounds however large RVs are discouraged from using Castle Rock or Knowles Canyon campgrounds due to rough and narrow main entrances. Vegetation is sparse and mainly consists of pinyon-juniper trees, sage and various scrub brush. Firewood is scarce so bring your own.
