Mancos Mesa WSA Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Mineral exploration heavily impacts about 10% of Mancos Mesa, but the remaining 90% is natural and offers both solitude and primitive recreational opportunities. No signs, no trails, no campgrounds. You will need the 1:24,000 topos listed in the maps section of this chapter to find roads, water sources, and routes into the canyons.
This remote area is 50 miles west of the small town of Blanding and lies north of UT 276, the border of the Red House Cliffs. To approach from the other direction, drivers have to take the ferry across Lake Powell at Halls Crossing. Mancos Mesa is an enormous block of slickrock mesa surrounded by steep cliffs."
