Eastern Utah- 1,607,602 acres
This district is not only dinosaur country, it is a recreational smorgasbord. Dry Fork Canyon displays outstanding rock art in beautiful stone canyons. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid visited the John Jarvie Ranch in Brown’s Park, which still retains many of its century-old buildings. Fantasy Canyon provides a 60-acre rock trail tour of some of the most unique and delicate sandstone features in the world. A map of this remote canyon is available through the district office.
The Vernal Field Office is located in the northeast corner of Utah–a rough and rugged slice of the Old West where Butch Cassidy and his Hole-in-the-Wall Gang felt right at home, hiding out among the hoodoos and gulches. Here lie landscapes of extremes from the fir-covered vistas of the Book Cliffs in the south, to the stark lowlands of Uintah Basin sweeping north. Reaching further east is Flaming Gorge country, where one can see the fossilized history of dinosaurs that roamed this area many years ago.

The Price Field Office is located in the mid section of Utah-the gateway to the red rock country of the San Rafael Swell. The swells have been described as the jagged remains of a dinosaur backbone, a sandstone coral reef, and a stone saw blade. Traveling east, you’ll find the Green River, a premiere river trip in Utah’s deepest Canyon just west of the Green River is a major representative area of the prehistoric Fremont Culture where one can see panels of rock art.
