Named after the crescent shape of the Book Cliffs to the north, Crescent Junction is a small fork in the road for travelers on I-70 to head south to Moab. Though many people zoom by at highway speed, and a small percentage of those stop at the gas station at Crescent Junction, few know of or visit the rock art a few miles north of the junction.

Northeast of Crescent Junction, the boulders at the base of the Book Cliffs hold an impressive amount of rock art. It is easy to imagine this spot as a rest spot between Sego Canyon and Green River for Native Americans in the area.

The panel was described to me several years ago without much enthusiasm, and I had put it low on my list of sights to visit. When we visited, though, we found it a very impressive panel and a great stopover if you are in the area.

Note: The road to the trailhead is 2wd, bordering on high clearance in a few spots. It could be easily walked or biked if needed.
