  • Now here is a spot not many people will visit... And miss out big time! Not located on a common thoroughfare to begin with, getting to the overlook involves conquering a rough 3 mile 4 x 4 road and then a semi strenuous hike (at least in summer conditions) but is it ever worth it. The view over the water pocket fold and the spectacular variety of Utah typical geology reimburses for all the bumps one has to conquer, in order to get there.
  • A must do if you are on the burr trail, the road to the trail head can easily be done in a high clearance 2wd and the hike to the overlook is relatively easy.. just follow the travelled trail then bear to the right when you hit the rock area, there were a few cairns marking the way when I visited , the hike affords a great view of the valley
