The Burr Trail was originally developed by a rancher named John Atlantic Burr to move his cattle between summer and winter grazing grounds.The west end, starting in Boulder, Utah, (elevation 6675 feet) wanders through the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument past bleached-white Navajo sandstone formations (which began as sand dunes millions of years ago) and plateaus and woodlands dotted with pinyon pines and aspens.
About 9 miles in, it drops into Long Canyon, a narrow canyon with towering dark red Wingate sandstone cliffs.
Pretty amazing rock on column here.
We turned around where the paved road turns into a gravel road. The views of the Henry Mountains, the Waterpocket Fold, and Captial Reef National park were spectacular from this viewpoint.
