Basic Directions

From Price, travel south on Hwy. 10 to the turnoff between mileposts 39 and 40. There is an old wooden corral and sign for Buckhorn Wash/ Wedge Overlook. Go left and travel down the dirt road for 13 miles. The road forking right (south) from here is the route to the Wedge. This is the beginning of the inter- mediate level ride to the overlook. About 11 miles further along the main road, you reach the campground on the San Rafael River. There are two bridges here, an old swinging bridge built in 1937 by the Civil- ian Conservation Corps, and a more modern concrete structure. Advanced riders can begin their tour here.
