Relatively easy hike. Great preservation.

Returned this summer and found it this time. Interesting for it be the sole petroglyph. Fun to see, need to do Sinbad, the pioneer cabin the same time.

Fun detour, must do the Lone warrior, Sinbad and the Durtchman arch to make it all worth while when there.

Beautiful coloration around the base of the geyser to the green river. There were a couple of people there that had been waiting for 2 days for an eruption.

Absolutely awesome drive. We drove all the way to I-70 and it was gorgeous. Road was a little slick in the final descent towards the Swinging Bridge but we made it through okay. All in all this is an absolutely amazing drive with very few people in the way!!

Next to the river. Pretty cool. Had about a 4 foot eruption.

We found Crystal Geyser after looking for a place to stay on a road trip. Just before sunset, the drive toward the geyser felt like a journey on a different planet. Once at the geyser, the environment was very serene and the orange travertine gave a warm dimension to the moment. Drive with caution since the road is really rough and rocky. I was able to pull it off with a two-door Civic.

This area is mostly isolated, with the exception of people possibly driving by. Also a nice place to camp, if the weather is clear and dry. Overnight, I felt like a critter was sniffing around the tent, so keep in mind that may be possible. The geyser itself merely gurgled until the next morning before heading to Moab. It erupted for over half an hour.

If you're looking for a place to boondock and don't mind the drive, this site is great.

This drive was fantastic! The variety of rock formations, colors and vast scenery are well worth the drive. Roads are well maintained but we could see deeper tracks from when it was muddy. We traveled this trail to the wedge overlook which is highly recommended! There are several other sightseeing attractions along this road.

Mix between shade and sun. Mostly sun. Beautiful sheer cliffs from the valley Easy trail. We did see petroglyphs

Tried to find, traveled the whole distance but the last mile or so. The roads from Sinbad to the lone warrior must be reclaimed. It does not exist as shown on the map. Hunted for it but could not find.

Went hiking with our dog on the Mega Steps trail, (2.7m) with beautiful scenery towards the end of that trail, then looped back the Baby Steps Trail (1m), then the Dino Flow Trail (1m). All trails are very clearly marked. There are many other trails, primarily for biking but also great to hike. Parked our 31ft Class C on the main parking lot and walked a short biking trail about 0.7m towards the start of the Mega steps trail. Amazing biking and hiking trails.

My 5 year old daughter did this hike easily, and enjoyed visiting the dinosaur tracks.

This is a spectacular canyon that I rode on horseback last February. Many fun river crossings, especially bounding up the banks on the other side on horseback! Beautiful red rock walls, pictographs along the way, great variety of beautiful desert scenery. Kane Wash is another great ride in the area where you can do some fun galloping on horseback. We spent three days with a base camp on the river and had great rides and a great time. I would like to float someday in May or June or backpack and stop at Virgin Springs Canyon for some exploring.

Was with the Northern Utah ATV club and this was one of the trails we rode. Got to walk through this cabin and cool off for a minute.

As many would agree there is some amazing rock art! The large groups of 4 wheelers gets old when they don't pull over but decide to take up the whole road. But don't let that ruin your day!

Great drive - easy in the beginning - much tougher as you go - 4wd high clearance - only after 2.0 mile mark. We drove the trail east to west ( 2.2 miles west of SR 24 off I-70 north side to Jackass Benches, Sinkhole Flat, ext 129 on I-70) Very hot, dry, but very beautiful views!

One of the better rock art sites in the San Rafael Swell. My first time here was in 2005.

This trail is usually done with the Swasey Cabin, Dutchmens Arch, or Head of Sinbad Pictograph trails, as they are all off I-70, exit 131. The last section (about 1/2 mile) is not maintained, and is washed out pretty bad. The rest of the road back to the Interstate is well maintained.

The rec site is along the river east of the bridge. This can be done in conjunction w/ the Buckhorn wash pictoral site.

We were visiting the Buckhorn Wash Pictographs, and decided to go back to Moab on a different route. We drove up to the Green River Cutoff Road, and followed it to HWY 6. It had rained the day before, and the road was still quite muddy. The farther we went, the muddier it got. We made it out, and had to stop in Green River to wash off some of the mud on our Jeep. In dry weather, this would be an easy drive.

Swasey's Cabin is very easy to get to, even in a passenger car. The graded road is a little rub-boarded at times, but not really that bad. We were there in 2005, and again in 2011.
