Fantasy Canyon

Fantasy Canyon is one of the most fragile and unique geological places in the world. Officially documented by famed paleontologist Earl Douglas in the early 1900's, this site was also called "The Devil's Playground" and "Hades Pit." This area of unique erosional features is located about 27 miles south of Vernal. This area may be hard to get to, but one is rewarded by a short easy walk of less than 1 mile through a variety of fantastic formations.
