San Rafel Swell, Green River, Utah
Oct 12, 2013-60miles
Here we are at San Rafel Rift or Swell, which is 30 miles south of Green River, Ut. The Goblin Valley State Park and Little Horse slot canyon is also at the end of the road. We found some places to boondock on BLM land. We met a large group of OHV campers at the dry camp area, they have been coming to this area for decades. We rode the Behind the Reef trail, a 50 inch trail. After 18 miles, it dipped in to a canyon, where they built a ledge to continue on. This was the spot indicating 50 inch trail!
We took a day off and toured the Goblin Valley State Park and hiked the Wild Horse Slot Canyon trail.
DIRECTIONS: 11 West of Green River on Int.70, south on Hwy 24, turn on the road of Goblin Valley State Park. When the Park road turns L, south, go straight ahead and you will find a big boon docking area with toilets and the trail head.
