Yes, Swinging Bridge is where Buckhorn Wash pops out and joins the San Rafael River. The road then keeps going south to I70 at the Sinbad interchange (not sure what exit that is?), but if you cross under the freeway there you will be on Temple Mountain Rd and headed for Reds.I have a few questions for you guys who are familiar with the Swell.
Is the Swinging Bridge directly on Buckhorn Wash road? I think Buckhorn takes off directly off of I-70 at exit 131 going north, correct?
Next question is Muddy Creek area. Is that located at the far west side of Reds Canyon near Tomsich Butte? I think the wife and I will have 2 full days to explore and I was thinking of spending one north of I-70 and one south of I-70.
We really liked Black Dragon wash/canyon and want to do it again but also explore some new areas. I was thinking of taking off I-70 at the east side of Black Dragon wash, going through the wash over to Buckhorn wash road then head north to explore around the Swinging Bridge if I am thinking of the correct area.
On the second day I was thinking of heading south and over to Swasey's Cabin then we played in Eagle's Canyon last time but I think we missed the turn to go under the I-70 bridges last time so thought we would find that turn off, go under the I-70 bridges, then come back down and connect with the road to Reds Canyon. I would like to explore Reds Canyon a bit more and heard that Muddy Creek and some cool mining areas were in Reds Canyon.
I would appreciate any thoughts.
