The Hogback

Between Calf Creek Recreation Area and Boulder Town is an internationally famous stretch of byway known as “The Hogback.” As the asphalt clings to this thin razorback ridge of slickrock, the terrain spills steeply off to each side toward winding creeks and canyons below, where cottonwoods provide ribbons of green, gold, or gray depending on the season. Driving here is slow and cautious, but the vistas are incredible.
