Sego Canyon is a great adventure the entire family will enjoy. The canyon contains rock art from three different Native American cultures and a very well preserved ghost town. The company store and a boarding house still partially stand in the center of town. There are ruins to many houses scattered through out the canyon along with remnants of the coal mine.
There is wonderful rock art and historic ghost town can be viewed as a short side trip from Interstate 70 near Green River Utah. Plan to spend about 2 hours to visit both the rock art and ghost town combined with a little exploring on your own. Navigation for this route is easy and all sites can be accessed with the family passenger vehicle in good weather conditions.

The sego lily is an ornamental plant of the lily family, also known in parts of the West as mariposa lily. It is native to the region West of the Rocky Mountains, especially Utah, of which it is the state emblem. It has narrow leaves, beautiful tuliplike white flowers marked with purple, lilac, or yellow, and bulbous roots that were used by the early settlers for food.
