Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This is a spur off the once-wild Burr Trail Road, a.k.a. Boulder to Bullfrog Road, tamed by asphalt in 1990 to the park boundary. Among the attractions are the Circle Cliffs and the Wolverine Petrified Wood Natural Area, all of it located amid one of the largest and most remote wildlands remaining in the Lower 48. Like dammed rivers, paved roads can have tributaries that recall the main stem’s wild past. So it is with Wolverine Loop Road. It courses beneath the soaring Circle Cliffs, Wingate sandstone that was once the dunes of a Triassic-Jurassic (144–208 million years ago) desert and then crosses a grassy valley."
