The Wolverine Road takes you into the colorful past of prehistoric southern Utah. The route leads to the Wolverine Petrified Wood Natural Area within the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Many feared this segment of the Wild West was destined to vanish forever when the Burr Trail was paved in the late 1980s. But in 1996, the designation of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument preserved this rough-and-tumble land from future intrusions by the civilized world. Tread: 26 miles of dirt, sand, and rock roads; and 10 miles of pavement.
