Wayne County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: July 15, 2006
I left home at 4 am. It was 98 degrees outside - I was only too happy to be
getting out of the smothering heat for a few days. Ten hours and 550 miles
later I was in Wayne County and Bluebell Knoll.
I followed High in Utah (HIU) and made the HP with no trouble. On the way out,
I followed the road net directly back to Loa. This saves about 15 miles round
trip (to/from Loa, rather than via Bicknell).
If interested: Where UT-24 turns
from south to east in Loa, follow a paved road south for 2 miles.
Where that road makes a sharp turn east, turn south onto a dirt road.
It's a well-maintained BLM road and meets up with the HIU directions after 9 miles.
A treat is a tour through some wildly eroded boulders along the way.
