Miner's Park-Bullion Falls

bullion-falls-utah

Marysvale, UT has a long history of mining and there is a great Miner’s Park located just a few miles from Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort. You can see this historical Miner’s Park as part of The Canyon of Gold Auto Tour or by using the Paiute ATV Trail.

You get to Miner’s Park by heading West on Bullion Canyon Road from Downtown Marysvale, and travel approximately 5 miles to the start of the Miner’s Park Interpretive Area. The upper portion of the road is not recommended for passenger cars, RVs, or trailers.

There is a Self Guided Driving Tour on the Forest Service Road that leads to Miner’s Park. Brochures are available along the road in trail boxes. These brochures are considered ‘free’ to use, but please either put them back in the trail box after you have finished your adventure, or leave $1 in the feed tube near the trail box.

The Miners’ Park Historical Trail begins in front of the wooden mine car. The trail continues to climb into the trees. For .25 mile, the trail goes past 16 displays of mining equipment, reconstructed workings and a refurbished cabin. There is a picnic area across the road from the Miners’ Park, complete with tables and fire rings. Please pack out all that you bring in.

For a scenic walk, a 2 mile round-trip trail begins at the bridge below the Bully Boy Mill. This trail follows the north side of the creek to an overlook above the Bullion Canyon water falls. These 60 foot falls are especially spectacular in the early summer when runoff swells the volume of the creek.For those who enjoy touring by auto, turn right onto Forest Road 126 by the Bully Boy Mill. This 10 mile journey will take you near the 11,500 foot summit of Mt. Brigham and down through Cottonwood Canyon to U.S. Highway 89 just south of Marysvale. Be assured, the scenery is breathtaking. The road to Cottonwood Canyon is generally free of snow from mid-July to mid-November. The road tends to be rough in spots and higher clearance vehicles are recommended.
