This rest stop serves mostly recreational traffic accessing the San Rafael Swell and the nearby Book Cliffs. The facilities include restrooms, trash receptacles, a picnic area, and parking for 11 cars and 3 RV's. There is also an on-site maintenance personal/attendant. The area is usually crawling with people that are stopped to use the facilities on their way between Price and Green River. The juniper is very sparse, but can be birded early in the day when there aren't a lot of visitors.
JUNIPER TITMOUSE is a year round resident, while BREWER'S SPARROW and LAZULI BUNTING might be present in the summer. COMMON RAVEN, BREWER'S BLACKBIRD, and BARN SWALLOW have all been reported, and just about any of the species associated with the surrounding desert and juniper woodlands might show up here. You can easily park in one of the stalls and walk the perimeter in 10-15 minutes. You can also drive further east on Horse Canyon Road for a few minutes, for better habitat and no people!
From the on ramp at Exit 243 on US-191/6 in Price head south on US-191 for 24.4 miles till you reach a turn on your left for Horse Canyon Road. Turn here and the rest stop will be on your left (north side of the road).
