Welcome to Price & San Rafael Swell

These southern lands between Hwys 10 and 6/24 are the canyons, arches and cliffs of the San Rafael Swell. Look for the purples, grays and greens that indicate ancient seabeds, in addition to the oxygenated oranges and reds of this anticline. The area is all Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, where free dispersed camping and some four-wheel driving is allowed. Sights include a 1200ft canyon drop at Wedge Overlook, Barrier Canyon–style pictographs at Buckhorn Wash and a suspension footbridge. Ask for a basic map at the town visitor center or the quarry site. For more details, go online to www.emerycounty.com/travel.
