: Don't have Coal City now, but Sego is little over 8 miles north of Thompson. Take gravel exiting

: north, 4.8 miles past badly marred pictographs.

: Road good in dry weather, crossing usually dry creek several times on old railroad trestles. If

: that is still the case, check for wood rot before crossing, in any case stay on parallel planks.

Wasn't this place totally destroyed/leveled and locked away?

Coal City is currantly active. the remnants that were around in the early ninties have been since leveled. The road to the city is gated with no way around as the canyon is rather steep.
Sego is a nice jaunt, just barely west on 1-70 of the Moab turn off. (I think exit 212?) THere is a barely functioning little town on the way up the canyon, there is also a turn off to a cemetary before you head up the canyon, this should not be missed, its on the edge of a mesa overlooking the town. Follow the road up SEGO canyon... There is NOT, any railroad trestles to cross, nor has there been for quite some time. The floods of 80-81(or so) wiped out all the trestles. You will see the remnants as you head up the canyon. As you come into Sego. look up the canyon directly east of the brothel, there is a large stone building, follow the ridge up the east side of the canyon and keep an eye on the trees below, at the right height you can see a cabin roof in the trees near the back(south east end) of the canyon. Mark it, and hike to it. The cabin is in great shape and in the floor is access to a nice mine, its not a coal mine, I actually have no idea what was mined out of it, but bring a rope for some of the drop offs. Also, head strait up the river bed when you are done in Sego. As you get into some of the rougher terrain you will be able to spot indian writings and graineries in the high canyon walls. Good luck!!
