Ancient Habitation Sites, Rock Art Panels, and Museums

Eastern Utah - Ute Region

Dry Fork Canyon, on the lower west portion of the Red Cloud Loop north of Vernal, has some of America's most impressive petroglyph panels.

Buckhorn Draw near Cedar Mountain in the San Rafael Swell, about 20 miles east of Castle Dale on gravel roads, and Temple Wash north of Goblin Valley State Park, offer intriguing petroglyphs.

Rochester Creek Panel, a rock art site located just south of Moore (about 50 miles south of Price, or North of Fremont Jct. off I-70) is a birthing panel.

Nine Mile Canyon is an outdoor museum. Accessed from US-40 at Duchesne/Myton to the north or US-6 at Price/Wellington to the south via gravel road, the canyon walls feature countless petroglyph and pictograph panels. Pick up a detailed self-guided tour brochure available in Price.

Range Creek Wildlife Management Area, southwest of Price, shelters pristine Fremont Indian rock art and ruins among the rugged Book Cliffs. Owned by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, it is considered one of the most significant archaeological finds in the US in the last 50 years. Range Creek is open to limited public visitation, permits are required, http://umnh.utah.edu/rangecreek_home.
