Comb Wash Drive Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The wash courses along the base of a spectacular northsouth ridge with 800-foot-high cliffs bursting from the Earth’s crust.

In this area, where evidence abounds of the Ancestral Puebloan (sometimes referred to as the Anasazi) who once lived here, occurred what may have been the last skirmish in the U.S. between Native Americans and white settlers. Comb Wash also is where writer Edward Abbey’s fictional Monkey Wrench Gang (from his novel of the same name) sabotaged road-building equipment (Chapter 6, “The Raid at Comb Wash”). It’s best in spring and fall."
