Things to do on Your Way to Twin Rocks
1) See the Grand Canyon in Arizona
2) Head to Mesa Verde in Colorado
Now, for a tighter view, we give you things to do while in Utah, and every one is just a whisk away from Twin Rocks Trading Post!
1) Hovenweep National Monument: (970) 749-0510 Isolated, spectacular ruins of square, oval, circular and D-shaped towers. Primitive camping, no potable water. Amazing!
2) Wild Rivers — Right here in Bluff! (800) 422-7654 Boat trips down the ancient San Juan River where you’ll visit petroglyphs and plenty of amazing wildlife and sites with no access except the river.
3) Edge of the Cedars State Park: Blanding, UT. (801) 678-2238 Rare basket collection. One of the finest displays of ancient pottery in the Southwest. A restored Pueblo ruin.
4) Goosenecks State Park: 8 miles north of Mexican Hat. The San Juan River looks like a green snake as it curves back on itself at the bottom of a 1,100 foot canyon. Camping.
5) Monument Valley Tribal Park: (801) 727-3287 Fantastic orange-red-neon rock formations that have been made famous by countless of western movies. It’s also the place Forrest Gump stopped running!
6) Arches National Park: (801) 259-8161 This has the greatest density of rock arches in the world — 1,500 have been catalogued. This is truly one of the hearts of red rock country.
7) Canyonlands National Park: (801) 259-7164 Canyons, mesas, buttes, fins, arches and spires. The area is primitive and wild and mind-blowing.
8) Capitol Reef National Park: (801) 425-3791 Contains the unique Waterpocket Fold and the Fremont River. Go wild with the sheer number of petroglyphs, fossils and eerie rock formations.
9) Natural Bridges National Monument: (801) 259-5174 Natural bridges, hanging gardens, ancient ruins, hiking, primitive camping and a scenic drive. Terrific.
Anywhere you go for a trek through the Authentic Southwest, you are just a buzz away from Twin Rocks. A cool porch will welcome you.
