Basic Directions

The John Jarvie Historical Ranch is the best place to begin this adventure. The property, now managed by the BLM, is an old trading post dating back to the early 1800s. From Vernal, head north on Hwy 191 to the Utah/Wyoming line, then turn south on the graded Browns Park road. Proceed down the road for 22 miles, following the signs for the historic site. The trailhead and parking are located 4 miles east of the ranch. Follow the trail counter-clockwise beginning with a short climb. The trail levels out as it heads along the plateau above the river. There is a signed spur that travels for about a half a mile to an excellent viewpoint of the red rock bluffs at the mouth of Swallow Canyon. The trail then heads north to join with the graded dirt road and back to the trailhead. More information, water, restroom facilities, and tours are available at the John Jarvie Ranch.
