Just off the main highway. The views are amazing. Well worth a look if your passing through. Look out for the 'walk out' and viewing point just off the carpark, but take care the path gets a little tricky and narrow.

This was an unexpected find while traveling I-70. We were enjoying the scenery when we saw a sign for a scenic overlook right off the interstate. This is such a beautiful area and I'm glad we stopped to take in the views!

So the I-70 drive through Utah is one of my favorites and the Black Dragon Canyon is a great stop along the way to stretch your legs or get some exercise. Beautiful scenery and history at the rest stop but beware of the rest room,...More

Enjoyed the trail though challenging in spots. Take more water than you think you will need. Would like to try from the top.

You get to the art within a few hundred yards. The panel is spectacular Fremont style rock art, a pictograph said to be a winged reptile, perhaps a pterodactyl, the Black Dragon. You can continue up the winding canyon to make it a 5-6 mile...More
