Description

Not as well known and/or travelled as Joe’s Valley next door, Huntington Canyon has opportunities for both ice and rock climbing. It currently may be better known for its ice routes.

Through Huntington Canyon runs Utah Highway 31, known as the “Energy Loop” and the Huntington and Eccles National Scenic Byway. The canyon has streams, lakes, forest and of interest to climbers, steep, sandstone cliffs and the occasional waterfall.

This area is more known for coal mining than for climbing recreation. Near the bottom of the canyon is the prominent Huntington Power Plant.

There are a few campgrounds in the area and a number of spots for primitive camping. Huntington has a hotel, gas stations, a small grocery store and a couple of restaurants. Nearby Price has much more in the way of services for the visitor.

Huntington Canyon is in the Manti-La Sal National Forest. It is a “multiple use” area. Climbers should be prepared to share the area with hunters, fishermen, OHV riders, campers, hikers and horseback riders.

Getting There

From Price, take Highway 10 to Emery County’s largest town, Huntington, and continue northwest to Huntington Canyon on Highway 31.

Travelling east on Highway 31 from Fairview up to the Wasatch Plateau takes one to the top of Huntington Canyon from the west.
