Four miles off Utah Highway 261 near Mexican Hat, you
can look into a 1,000-foot-deep chasm carved through the
Pennsylvanian Hermosa Formation by the silt-laden San
Juan River. The river meanders back and forth, flowing
for more than five miles while progressing only one linear
mile toward the Colorado River and Lake Powell. The access
road is paved. Facilities include primitive camping and
vault rest rooms.
