“This is an epic destination run in central Utah with breathtaking views.”— Ryan Delany
You can also do this run as an out-and-back for a 50k. There is a campsite at about the mid-point that serves as a nice place for a water drop, or you can start here and run one section of the trail as an out-and-back and then the other section as an out-and-back.
There are bathrooms and picnic tables at The Wedge Overlook, but no other services (such as water).
The Wedge Overlook is one of the best scenic vistas in the state. You'll see a dizzying viewpoint of this fantastically eroded gorge. It overlooks the San Rafael River as it flows through the "Little Grand Canyon." From this vantage point you can view Sid's Mountain Wilderness Study Area, Window Blind Peak and the southern Buckhorn Wash area. From the Wedge, travel east or west for more spectacular adventures. This is the perfect area for drivers, ATV riders, cyclists or hikers.
