Most of Ramblers, a 90-mile-long rectangle in western Utah, is a remote land of desert mountains interrupted by broad, sagebrush-covered basins. The towering Tushar Mountains, the state’s third-highest range, bounds the county on the east with snow-capped peaks, deep canyons—and few roads. A 30-mile stretch of I-15 and the town of Beaver, Beaver County’s seat, lie west of the mountain front. While most travelers speed through the county on their way to St. George or Zion, the adventurers who get off the highway and explore Beaver County find spectacular scenery in the Tushars. On the west side of the County off highway 21 lies one of Utah’s best rockhounding areas, twisting scenic drives, abandoned ghost towns, and plenty of solitude. Here are five reasons why it’s well worth your time to get off the expressway and explore the region for yourself.
