Family Fun and Leisurely Exploration


Swasey's Beach

Laze about on the sand or finish your day with a campfire and spectacular sunset at Swasey’s Beach. North of Green River, this white sand beach shaded by cottonwood trees spans a bend in the river along the edge of the Book Cliffs. Shallow water gives children plenty of opportunity to frolic, and bighorn sheep frequent the water’s edge. From Skyfall, head east on Main Street, then turn left on Hastings Road and follow it all the way to the beach parking area.

17 minutes, 10 miles to the beach

Little Wild Horse Canyon
Eye of SInbad

Crystal Geyser

One of a handful of cold-water geysers in the entire world, the Crystal Geyser draws sightseers for its vigorous eruptions and for the brilliant orange travertine formations the mineral-rich water creates. This is a great sunset spot.

19 minutes, 8.3 miles to the geyser


Black Dragon Canyon

The beautiful and easily accessible Black Dragon Canyon is a must. A short hike into the canyon reveals several rock art panels. See if you can spot the dragon-like creature to the left of the main panel. If you’re feeling really adventurous, scramble up the rockfall to the left of the rock art and search for the entrance to a hidden cave. From Skyfall, get on I-70 west. Prepare to pull of the interstate at mile marker 147. Go through the gate. Cross the wash and follow the dirt road for about a mile.

18 minutes, 17 miles to the trailhead


Scenic I-70 Drive

This is one of the most scenic stretches of interstate in the country and makes for a great drive all by itself. From Green River, head west and enjoy the views and scenic overlooks all the way to exit 131 where you can turn around and enjoy the drive back.

60 minutes, 63 miles roundtrip from Green River to exit 131 and back
