Yant Flat - Utah
What to do if you have little time : Yant Flat
Yant Flat is still quite unknown and therefore very little used. It is a beautiful place with hills shaped like fish scales or turtle shell. This is one of our favorites of the trip in 2017. The best is to camp on site to enjoy the sunset that illuminates the hills of a beautiful orange, and attend the sunrise. In summer, it allows to explore the site in the morning freshly.
Provide plenty of water in the summer. There is very little shade in Yant Flat.
The hike for Yant Flat is not very long since it is only 1,5 miles to the "entrance" of the site. At first, the sand trail is well marked but at one point you have to leave it to the left to walk through scrub. A hiking GPS is useful for finding access. If the hike is short, it is once there that you will walk the most to explore the area. And there is a lot to see! Upon arrival, the most beautiful part is offered to you. The whole eastern part is also fun to explore even if it is a little less pretty. It is also much more extensive and requires several hours of walking in sand or slickrock very sloping and also in the pebble.
Access : from St George, take I15 north and at Leeds city exit take exit 22. Continue on 228 for 1.6 miles and turn left onto Silver Reef Road passing under I15 for 1.2 miles. Continue straight on Oak Grove Road for half a mile. Then take the track (without difficulty) right on the FR 032 for 1.5 miles, then left on the FR 031 for 7.3 miles to the car park.
