Sand In My Shoes
by AZLOT69

Likely In-Season!
Overview
Don’t attempt this road if wet. The corral and beyond are on BLM land but ranchers lease the land. Respect the land and close any gates you opened behind you.


Hike
The "road" becomes extremely sandy beyond the corral and basically a cow path. The surface is like talcum powder. Your destination lies ahead as you enter a canyon. Soon you come to a wash that has completely washed out the road. Follow the cow path. Quitchupah Creek is on your left. Soon a large canyon will enter from the right. This is your trigger to start looking for Rock Art in earnest.

There are petroglyphs and pictograms in this area. You are going to have to hunt for them. There is plenty to find. This area is seldom visited and the only trails in the area are cow paths. You can continue on, crossing Quitchupah Creek and find more rock art to the west. Hunt to your heart's content then return the way you came.

Check out the Triplog.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.

    To hike
    From Emery, Utah take highway 10 south four miles. Just before the creek there is a road to the east. Just after that and still before the creek there is a dirt road to the right. Take the road to the right. In about .7 miles you will pass a farm house. Continue on 3.3 miles to a corral. This will be your trailhead
