This loop trail, contained entirely within the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument, runs south of the Burr Trail, west of Capitol Reef National Park. For the most part, the route follows a loop trail that has been graded by the BLM. However, at the farthest end of the graded loop, the route breaks away from the graded trail in favor of a smaller ungraded sandy track that follows a small wash and runs briefly along a ridgetop offering excellent views. Special Attractions: Wolverine Petrified Wood Natural Area; Slot canyons in Wolverine Canyon; Spectacular canyon scenery in the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
