Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"If you’re traveling on I-70 west of the Utah/Colorado line, this is a convenient and rewarding side trip through the historic and prehistoric human presence in Utah. There are excellent prehistoric rock-art panels from Archaic and Fremont peoples, as well as historic Ute Indian figures. The remains of the old coal town of Sego cap the tour. Spring and fall are the best times to enjoy it."

"The Sego Ghost Town Trail may be short, but it makes up in beauty and historical interest what it lacks in length. This trail makes an easy side trip along I-70 if you want to take in some local scenery and don’t have much time. Special Attractions: Rock art panels; Sego ghost town and the old railroad grade; Connects with Sagers Canyon Trail and Floy Wash Trail; Panoramic views. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."

This is a great place to see some awesome rock art. Most of it is nicely preserved. Some of it has been vandalized by ignorant A-Holes. Easy to get to
