Touring the Nine Mile Canyon Back Country Byway is an exciting journey into the history of prehistoric cultures, early travelers, and the fast-disappearing Utah rural lifestyle. Magnificent canyon scenery, still home to an array of easily spotted wildlife also awaits your visit.

How to visit Native American sites:

Leave Native American rock art, ruins, and artifacts untouched for the future. The oil from a single handprint can chemically affect rock art. Climbing on ruin walls can destroy, in a moment, a structure that has survived for a thousand years. Removing or even moving artifacts destroys the scientific value of sites. Chalking or wetting rock art is prohibited. Report vandalism to the BLM.
