Buckhorn Wash

Buckhorn Wash (San Rafael Swell)

Buckhorn Wash is a very easy graded road through the heart of the San Rafael Swell north of Interstate 70. In dry conditions, a passenger vehicle would have no issues navigating this road. This road is easy to access from I-70.

While this road is not challenging, it does offer some excellent scenery and history along the route, including Indian rock art and dinosaur tracks. There is even an inscription from the infamous Matt Warner.

This road also can take you to a number of other trails in the northern part of the Swell including The Wedge Overlook, Swasey’s Leap and Mexican Bend. You can spend a lot of time exploring this area.
