GREAT DRIVE!! ONLY thing that would have been better is the time of year that we came. I it would have come in the Spring or fall or summer the foliage would have been much more beautiful but nevertheless it was still pretty.

Probably one of the coolest places that I’ve ever explored! You drive into an old ghost town where Thelma and Louise was filmed in the diner. There’s abandoned shops and houses. Then you drive past a few homes and keep going back until you reach the petroglyphs and pictographs. They’re creepily amazing! Past there is an old cemetery and store.

Drove to the petroglyphs and pictographs then on to the ghost town. Easy drive in the dry summer. There were some very sturdy buildings built out of rock that are still standing. Well worth the drive.

Good place to drive in to and look at some petroglyphs. Not a hike tho. Its sectioned off so you can only walk around so much.

Sego Canyon is a great place to stop as you tour Utah's national parks. The paintings on the canyon wall are particularly interesting, so I'd recommend reading a little about them before going. We did not spend a lot of time here, but did get out of the car to look at the paintings.

Sego Canyon is off Interstate 70 exit 187. The first part is a narrow paved road. The road splits; the right hand road goes to the ghost town of Sego.
