First Scenic Overlook
Please view the enlarged map above for more detail. This is a really unique daytrip in the desert and through the Beaver Mountains. Not a trail most would even think exists. Great views plus other neat sights.
A Closer Look!
As many times as we've driven South down I-15 past exit 18 at Cedar Pocket's in the desert we never thought there could be a trail going West through such rugged mountains and cliffs. It just doesn't look like it'd be possible to put a road through there. It is though! And it's a very scenic daytrip. 53 miles and 4.5 hours. This is one trip you won't want to miss out on. Photos, maps and GPX tracks provided. See map below.
