Warner Valley Dinosaur Tracks

 (3.0)

Warner Valley Dinosaur Tracks image

These dinosaur tracks are relatively well preserved, and offer a unique glimpse into what was once a wetland inhabited by these ancient creatures. There is a short drive involved on a dirt road to get to the trail to the tracks, and then a short hike of less than half a mile to get to the actual track site. With interpretive signs at the site, it is easy to appreciate the significance of the tracks.

Escalante-Dominguez Trail (North Warner Valley)

 (2.0)

Escalante-Dominguez Trail (North Warner Valley) image

Atanasio Domínguez and Silvestre Vélez de Escalante were Franciscan priests who led an exploration party trying to find an efficient route from Santa Fe New Mexico, to Monterrey, California in 1776. This expedition was the first time that Europeans saw much of the areas in Utah, Colorado, and Northern Arizona. The attempt was not successful in finding the desired route, resulting in the group heading south through Southern Utah. This marker and others like it helps document the exact path taken by this party.

Fort Pearce

 (3.0)

Fort Pearce image

Fort Pearce is a quick drive away from the city of Washington over an improved dirt road, and except for immediately after a rain will be accessible year-round. The site was a fort used to protect the pioneer settlers in the late 1800's, and is located along the Fort Pearce wash. This is a unique historical site with much of the structure still standing, making it easy to imagine what the fort was like when it was built.

Sand Hollow Reservoir

 (4.0)

Sand Hollow Reservoir image

One of the newest bodies of water in Southern Utah, Sand Hollow Reservoir is located right at the heart of Sand Hollow State Park. This 1300 acre lake is great for sport fishing, jetskiing, waterskiing/wakeboarding, and all kinds of other water fun. A red rock island in the middle of it all provides the final touch to set this reservoir above all the rest.

Fort Pearce Trail (Warner Valley)

 (1.0)

Fort Pearce Trail (Warner Valley) image

More a launching point into the Warner Valley wilderness than anything else, the Fort Pearce trail is largely undocumented and appears to simply be the conversion of a road system into a non-motorized trail. The trailhead is right off of Warner Valley road, but sorting the trail out from the remnants of the ATV trail system that preceded it is difficult.
