This tour offers so much—great vistas from the Diamond Mountain Plateau, narrow Crouse Canyon, the narrow (9 feet, 8 inches wide) single-lane suspension bridge across the Green River, migratory waterfowl (best observed in spring and fall) at Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge (along the river on the Colorado side) and the John Jarvie Historic Property. Browns Park, a 40-mile-long valley shared by Utah and Colorado (with some of it extending into Wyoming), was a refuge for Wild West outlaws between jobs. At about mile 3 [N40°27.848' W109°28.417'] bear left, continuing northeast on Diamond Mountain Road. This narrow, paved road climbs to Diamond Mountain Plateau, providing a panorama of geologic turmoil.
