Stunning scenic American landmark

One of the many beautiful geological landmarks of the Cedar Mesa area, best picture time is in the morning or evening when sun is low.

I have been there many times, including many hikes and three backpacking trips. Every time I marvel at the natural beauty of the geology and archaeology. Lots of sites to visit an so close to Bluff which has nice lodging and eatereis.

Comb Ridge, just west of Bluff Utah, is often photographed but not often visited. Just off the Butler wash road on the east side of Comb Ridge there is access to the many of the ridges canyons some of which contain petroglyphs and ancient pueblo ruins. Great for hiking and exploring for everyone especially families.

The great thing about this are is there is plenty to explore. But I am of the mind set that you have to do your own research and search out those things you want to discover. This weeds out the casual observer who may be so inclined to take an artifact as a souvenir. If you're willing to research you're... More

Pick a canyon any canyon. It's just great hiking for the spring/fall season. Lots of very early American indigenous history in the rocks.

Lower and lower-angled than Waterpocket Fold and San Rafael Reef. Excellent for first exposure to slickrock hiking and short canyon hiking with small Anasazi ruins scattered around. Cruising sloped slickrock is like technical snow climbing -- go wherever your fancy takes you.

We followed the brochure in the Bluff Visitor's Center which wasn't 100% accurate, but got us to the parking spot at the end of the road. We hiked down to the edge of the canyon and there, my younger daughter got a case of cold feet. So we waited at the top while my other daughter and her father hiked... More

Hire a guide from Far Out Expeditions otherwise prepare for getting lost along the way. Take lots of water.

We've driven the length of Comb Ridge on both sides and hiked to various sites on the east side of the ridge. It's an amazing place and hiking is not long or difficult. The Procession Panel is especially worth the effort to get to. The southern end near Bluff has the best hiking and ruins.
