Rainbow Basin is stunning. Adventurers can park and wander through tall canyons. Bring lots of water!

This is a great place to visit with awesome great scenery and views. If you stay on the main road you don’t need a 4x4 vehicle and any vehicle will do fine. Please don’t liter and help keep these trails clean for everyone’s enjoyment.

Needed a place to camp while driving through and was very impressed with the views and beauty surrounding this area! Saw a desert fox in the early morning.. wouldn't suggest this place if your car is low to the ground, it's a mighty dirt road. Also if your scared of bees.. a lot of them buzzing around... wonderful place!

I have hiked this area up and down making a geologic map with my class mates. Very fun area to pull over the car and explore on foot.
