Wickiup - Black Dragon Canyon

| No Comments
Over the weekend of 21-22-23 March, I had the opportunity to camp and ride in the area of the Wickiup. (I-70, Exit 131, about 15 miles West of Green River, Utah).

The first order of business was to find a route into Black Dragon Canyon, so that Friday afternoon, I took of alone to map out a route, with the intent of riding it again Saturday - but then heading all the way into Green River (~160 miles) and back.

Tracks for the area are here:


Using my SPOT satellite tracker, I was able to map out the route as follows:

An interestingly dirty pond/lake found en route to Green River. I believe this is fed by an underground hot spring.

This dozer has likely been sitting up on the plateau for at least 50 years.
