Highway 191 runs from south to north through the range at the right and follows Cart Creek down the north side. Cart Creek flows from south to north through the highest part of the range and had to be in place before the crest was lifted to its present height. 

Bear Canyon (bootleg trail)

An easy trail that provides a fine introduction to the Flaming Gorge area. The double track dirt road is well maintained and offers views of Red Canyon and Lake Flaming Gorge from an overlook at the end of the trail. This is also enjoyable as an evening ride as the sunsets from the viewpoint are incredibly beautiful.  Views from the jet boat make for an incredible view while fishing. 

Beehive Point

Beehive Point, named for the many swallows that nested there. 

Boar's Tusk

Striking evidence of early human inhabitants is seen in rock art found at the Boar's Tusk, Seedskadee, and East Flaming Gorge areas. Researchers interpret the petroglyphs carved into rock at these sites as biographical, ceremonial, or spiritual expressions. The Red Desert's Black Art petrogylph is thought to date back 11,500 years, according to anthropologist and cultural historian Russell L. Tanner who says the rock art may be the continent's oldest.

However, more than 10,000 years ago individuals hunted now extinct large mammals in the grasslands just north of Red Canyon and may have camped on the edges of the canyon.
