Panorama from Muley Point.
At the top of the dugway a 5 mile gravel track leads southwest through BLM land to Muley Point overlook, which has more sweeping views south over the twisting, entrenched canyons of the San Juan River and to the desert beyond (see QTVR). This is a peaceful location, not often visited, and has many places where it is possible to drive off road and camp right at the edge of the sheer cliffs - one of the best (free) camping places in Utah. The very end of the road enters the Glen Canyon NRA and there are a couple of other tracks heading further west, but after a few miles a deep tributary of the San Juan River (Johns Canyon) puts an end to further travel in this direction. From the junction with the gravel track it is about 60 miles north along UT 261 and UT 95 to the upper end of Lake Powell at Hite along White Canyon, a drive which passes close to many sites of interest including the Cedar Mesa plateau - crossed by many canyons containing numerous Anasazi ruins, Natural Bridges National Monument, White Canyon and its tributary slot canyons and Dark Canyon.
