Buried Forest Concretions

The one-mile long hiking trail leads to a unique geological feature where round concretions, which are common in the area, have sheared in the cliff face and have the appearance of the butt ends of petrified trees. Thousands of these concretions dot the landscape following the Ferron Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale Formation for many miles.

The staging area for the hike is about a 25-minute drive from Price. To get there, you turn on a gravel road 2.4 miles east of the Sunnyside Junction on the south side of Highway 6, then follow the signs. The short, moderate hike is one mile in length with one semi-steep section.
