Jazz Chromoly Trailhead:
In Vernal on US-40 (the main drag), turn north on US-191. Drive to mile
10.7 and turn right at the paved road signed "Red Fleet Dinosaur
Trackway." Drive uphill 0.6 miles. At the top of the hill, turn left
onto a dirt road and immediately park in the wide area on the left. Jazz
Chromoly heads downhill to the west. Handsome Cabin Boy is just across the
paved road uphill.
Cattle grate parking: Drive to the cattle grate at mile 1.5 and park in the
small spot on the right side of the road. Handsome Cabin Boy goes southbound along the
fence. North of the road is a connector to Jazz Chromoly..
Dinosaur Tracks trailhead: Drive to the Dinosaur Tracks parking area at mile
2.4 from US 191. J-Boy is across the road from the uphill end of the
parking strip, and also 100 feet down the dinosaur tracks hiking trail.
Three Amigos dirt road: 1/10 mile uphill from the cattle grate,
turn left into a dirt doubletrack. In 2010, there was a wide spot for
parking just uphill. J-Boy is just up the paved road; the dirt road
intersects Three Amigos in about 1/3 mile.
