Other Names

Rock Point Canal, Steinaker Dam, Pitt Ditch, Red Mountain, Dry Fork Canyon, Doc's Beach

Last Known StatusOpen

This popular locals spot offers a wide variety of terrain that ranges from sandy washes, short and long hillclimbs, slick rock gardens and numerous miles of double track ATV trails to explore. Mountain and colorful canyon views are plentiful, so bring the camera. Vegetation is sparse but primarily consists of various juniper trees and sage brush.

There is no fee charged to park or ride at the BLM trailhead. The trailhead offers plenty of space for parking and primitive camping. Amenities are limited but a vault toilet and informational kiosk is available.

Camping and additional day use parking with direct trail access is available at Steinaker State Park. The park recently added a new cabin rental which comes with a queen sized bunk bed, futon bed, dining table with four chairs, microwave, refrigerator, AC and heat.
