If you come to Comb Ridge you can expect some bad roads. You should not expect to see people. Instead, from the cottonwoods along the stream to the protected alcoves of the ridge itself you get a sense of why Utes and their ancestors called this place home. The late Triassic Wingate sandstone seems to fracture in a way that keeps the climbs here scattered.This fits perfectly with the appeal of this areas isolated expanse.
From US 191 at Bluff travel 4 miles south of town to US 163. Comb ridge will be apparent at 8 miles and in another half mile turn north onto county road 235.(Between mile marker 37 and 38.)This is a dirt desert road, enjoy.
