Two peaks form the southeastern terminus of the Henry Mountains, Mount Holmes and Mount Ellsworth. Separated from the rest of the Henry Mountains by an intervening plateau and UT 276, these peaks constitute the Little Rockies WSA. Both the Little Rockies WSA and Fiddler Butte WSA are east of UT 276 in arid terrain that abuts Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. When combined with a visit to proposed wilderness in Glen Canyon NRA, Little Rockies and Fiddler Butte WSAs are well worth the trip. This trail guide includes descriptions of Mount Ellsworth, and Fourmile Canyon.
