Harker Canyon by Merrill Webb
Description: The canyon road is very rocky and would require a high-clearance vehicle to get very far up the canyon. In the lower part of the canyon, there are numerous "skeletons" of trees as a result of a 1994 fire. Higher up there is a nice riparian habitat along a small stream, with stands of cottonwood and aspen trees.
Directions: Just south of the bend of Highway 36 in Vernon, take the dirt road signed for Benmore. Go about 4 miles (south) until you get to a "T" in the road at Benmore (a couple of buildings -- don't expect too much).. Turn right (there's a sign indicating the direction to Bennion Creek and Harker Canyon). Go about 2 miles passing one cattle guard and turn left just before the second cattle guard. After traveling 2 miles on this road, you'll be at the mount of the canyon.
