“At a distance... a brilliant red gorge is seen, the red being surrounded by broad bands of mottled buff and gray at the summit of cliffs, and curving down to the water’s edge on the nearer slopes of the mountain. With a depth of 1,700 feet and a width of 4,000 feet, Red Canyon is an inspiring sight. Its maroon- and rust-colored sandstone cliffs, peppered with pine forests, cascade down to the sinuous aquamarine pool of Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Above rise the rugged slopes of the Uinta Mountains; beyond lie the endless prairie deserts of southern Wyoming. Today, the Forest Service-maintained ranch is listed on both the Utah and National Registers of Historic Sites. Tread: Rock studded and dirt singletracks from the visitor center to the Greendale Overlook. Light duty dirt roads and doubletracks on the Swett Ranch loop.
