9 Mile Canyon Horseback Rides and Wagon Trips

9 Mile Canyon Big Hunt PetroglyphFlying J Outfitters is pleased to announce we are now offering horseback rides and wagon trips at 9 Mile Ranch located in the heart of 9 Mile Canyon.  We are also offering Dutch oven dinner wagon rides.

9 Mile Canyon is known as the world’s longest art gallery and is filled with rock art, including tens of thousands of petroglyphs and pictographs, most of which were created by the Fremont and Ute Indians, beginning almost 1000 years ago and continuing to the mid-1800’s.

The history left behind on these rock panels throughout the canyon make 9 Mile a hot destination for archaeologists and tourists from all over the world.  The panels are of such remarkable quality and uniqueness they have even been featured in National Geographic and other notable magazines and publications.

9 Mile Canyon was a main transport corridor during the 1800’s and linked Castle Country, around Price, Utah to the Uintah Basin coming out in Myton, Utah.  In 1886 9 Mile Road was constructed by the Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th Cavalry Regiment and there was a stagecoach that came through the canyon.  You can still see remnants of the stagecoach stop as well as many of the old homesteads.  You can also see many cliff dwellings and granaries.

9 Mile Canyon Petroglyph9 Mile Ranch has lodging available to suit almost any need and family size.  They have everything from tents spots and camp trailer spots, to rustic cabins with some modern amenities to a full Bed and Breakfast facility.  They also offer big group sites to host your family reunions, weddings, or company retreats.  They have meals available as well as Dutch oven dinners if you choose.  They have a pavilion with a kitchen, a playground for the kids and modern restrooms and showers.
