Geocache Description:

Located at the overlook into Desolation Canyon on the Green River.

From Wellington Utah, take the Nine Mile Canyon road. Travel through to Gate Canyon, then on to Wrinkle Road. Continue towards the Sand Wash road. As you near the top of Sand Wash before the intersection, look to your right for a side road that heads eastwardly. Out on the plateau find the dirt airstrip. This is used occasionally, so watch for aircraft too! This is a beautiful view, and worth the effort. On the return you can stay on Wrinkle Road at the head of Sand Wash, and drive to Myton, and US40, or track down Sand Wash to the boat launch in Desolation Canyon. Nice campground, rustic cabins to look at and a monument to J.W. Powells 1869 trip down the Green River. Happy caching.
