Three Fingers Canyon
Three Fingers Canyon is a destination ride along dirt road. You'll only enter about 100 yards into the canyon itself. (You can hike up further if you want.) At the end of the ride are panels of pictographs on the Navajo sandstone. The round trip is 16.6 miles. It's a fairly quick trip. Outbound was under an hour, stopping for photos. Return was 35 minutes. The ride starts at 4100 feet elevation on the edge of the San Rafael Reef. Total climbing will be 900 feet for the round trip.

Slow down and get ready! 0.3 miles later, watch carefully for a gravel turnaround between freeway lanes, with a dirt road leaving the freeway on the right.

Join the road (or rather, the wash joins the road) heading south.

Westbound on I-70: Westbound, descend through the scenic rock canyon. As soon as you see sage brush, slow and watch for a dirt road with a metal gate. Park along the side and follow the road down to the wash and head south.
