Know Before You Go
To visit, take the Hwy 24 from Hanksville, in the direction of Capitol Reef. Eleven miles in, turn right on Coal Mine Road, a dry dirt track that curves around the Butte and heads North, accessible by any vehicle. Park and explore, or drive further to access a free campground and beautiful eroded rocks. Don't go too far though; after 10 miles, the road becomes impracticable.
If you drive a 4x4 or a dirt bike, and you've ever dreamed of drifting on the Moon, be sure to go make a few turns and skids in Swing Arm City, an off-roading terrain located next to the road's entrance.
