Black Dragon Wash Drive

Black Dragon Wash Drive Professional Review and Guide

"The San Rafael Swell, an eroded blister in the Earth’s crust 80 miles long and 30 miles wide, is one of canyon country’s most dramatic geologic features. Pioneers found the eastern side’s northsouth line of up-tilted sandstone plates similar to others in Utah, an obstacle to east-west travel akin to reefs in ocean travel.

You’ll enjoy the San Rafael Reef’s colorful rock, prehistoric rock art, and the narrow rock walls that tower hundreds of feet above Black Dragon Wash, named for a pictograph that someone apparently thought resembled a winged dragon. The beautiful 4WD canyon trail beyond the rock-art site is popular for mountain biking."
