Dome Plateau

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Alt Names

Colorado River, Dewey Bridge, Cave Springs, Laboco Arch, Professor Valley, Fisher Tower, Onion Creek, La Sal Mountains, Owl Draw Road, Dewey Bridge Campground

Last Known StatusOpen

This scenic area offers a long 4x4 loop that provides panoramic views of the surrounding desert and valleys. The trail winds near large caves, old mines and abandoned cabins made out of old railroad ties.

The trail can be accessed just after the Dewey Bridge or about 4 miles north. The terrain is mostly hardpacked, sandy and rocks, making this a good choice to bring the Jeep or ATV.

Primitive camping is permitted but there is a designated campground located near the Dewey Bridge. The campground has seven sites that are available on a first come, first serve bases and can accommodate small RVs.
