I have been going to the “ Swell” for 40 years but always came in from Castle Dale or Buckhorn rd off Hwy 70. And always to the Wedge overlook, ( which looked like a ghettowhen we went up there this time)where we would camp for a few days and leave the area. Thanks to OTG trails guide I got to see much more off the area than I have in the past. Especially on the south side of 70. I did as much of the trails as my Sprinter would allow only turning back at the tight trail in Black Dragon canyon and the beginning of Behind the Reef Trail. Did not try Devils Racetrack. All the campsites marked on the trails were really nice with some very interesting and artistic fire pits even though I never light a fire because at my age I turn in around dark. The trails are so much fun I’m going back to do them again.
