Fourteen miles west is the San Rafael Swell. It is a strikingly beautiful land of soaring cliffs, deep slot canyons, lonely towers and monolithic buttes, where wild burrows and horses run free. It is also one of the last great American wilderness area’s yet to be discovered by the parks, come and check out the San Rafael Swell. The “Swell” is twice as large as the state of Rhode Island and would be an extremely large National Park. There are more than 20 routes and almost 300 miles of amazing country.
Enjoy this awe-inspiring land from your car, Jeep, ATV, side by side, dirt bike, mountain bike, horse or on foot. The southern portion of the San Rafael is the location of Black Dragon Canyon.
