View of Factory Butte - Photo by arbyreed

Along Coal Mine Road is a great location to take in the imposing beauty of Factory Butte. This dirt road is fairly accessible, although an SUV or vehicle with high clearance is recommended, and has many incredible shooting views as you get closer and closer. Factory Butte is a isolated, flat-topped peak of grey sandstone, surrounded by desert lands and strange, eroded rock formations. To find Coal Mine Rd take the Hwy 24 from Hanksville, (in the direction of Capitol Reef) and roughly eleven miles in, turn right on Coal Mine Road. Park and explore, or drive further to access a free campground and beautiful eroded rocks. Don’t go too far though; after about 10 miles, the road becomes quite rough. (Hanksville, Utah, USA)
