HIGH DESERT: Southern Utah is a magical place to explore. Red rock and National Parks, State Parks – too numerous to name. Outdoor recreation around every corner – from river rafting to rugged canyon hikes, wildlife watching to wheeling. Dispersed camping, very abundant. Dirt back roads, by the many miles. Hiking and biking, all over!

The east-west Interstate 70 splits the state, so most parks are located south of the freeway. Green River is a highway town, along I-70 and the mecca, Moab, is south of the interstate.

MOAB, UT (southeast Utah) – is a hot bed of recreation activities, tourism, hotels, shopping, plus the 2 National Parks.

TORREY, UT (south central Utah) – hip mountain village, next to Fish Lakes National Forest and Capital Reef National Park.

SPRINGDALE, UT (southwest Utah) – the small river town that has merged with neighboring Zion National Park. Tourists everywhere.

Seek the small back roads to get you up and around the outskirts of Zion – very scenic drives. Ghost towns, pinyon & juniper forests, hidden canyons, watrfalls, kolobs and buttes. North of Zion NP, Navajo Lake and Cedar Breaks National Park @ 8000′ elevation – can have snow more than half the year, so plan according.

UTAH TIP = Beware: Thunderstorms and heavy rains are part of the package here in this desert state. Extreme flash floods possible, know the weather forecast and the warnings. Stay out of slot canyons during rainy season. Watch out for wet, muddy, red dirt roads. You’ll get stuck, even in 4WD.

Small farming towns are scattered throughout the National Park areas, some more geared for travelers than others. Many National Forests and BLM areas to camp (for free). Usually just a few miles outside the National Park boundaries. The further you get off pavement, the more seclusion you can find. Find the nearest ranger station and ask some questions – if needbe.

Ansel Adams Wilderness, part of Inyo NF and Sierra NF

This High Sierra terrain spans some of the most majestic areas of the Sierra Nevada – the youngest mountain range in the U.S. This wilderness is bordered by National Parks, National Forests, and other Wilderness Areas – all the way around it. Kaiser Wilderness and Lake Edison inside Sierra NF on the west, Yosemite National Park on the north, Inyo NF on the east side, and John Muir Wilderness on the south end. Wow!

This 230,300 acre, high elevation wilderness was formerly the Minarets Wilderness, renamed in 1984 to honor the pioneering landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Known for spectacular alpine scenery, elevations range from 7,000 to 14,000 feet. Rugged granite peaks and passes, with alpine lakes, includes high country east of the Sierra crest. Pacific Crest Trail and John Muir Trail cross this High Sierra Wilderness region.

This USDA map is also available at Ranger Stations.

Perfect for packing and hiking references, fishing lakes, creeks, high altitude camp sites, horse packing routes, or extended backpacking adventures. Map Scale = 1″ to mile; Printed on waterproof plastic paper. Updated in 2011. ISBN# 9781593515188
