About

Bureau of Land Management

Boyd Station survives as one of the best preserved Express Stations in Utah. This preservation is probably due to the fact that Bid Boyd, station master, continued to occupy the site into the current century

Clean & Quiet

Very well maintained roads out here, nobody around for miles, incredible history. So many roads to go explore old cabins, abandoned mines nearby. Just a great place to see & explore.

So many wonderful reasons to drive this route!

This road which, is the old Pony Express Trail, is surrounded by many varied activities to keep you entertained for weeks. To the north of the road past Boyd Station is the Dugway Geode beds where large soft ball sized geodes can be dug up! South of here at Topaz Mountain you can find, you guessed it, topaz! There is also aquamarine and obsidian near the Topaz Mountain area.

At the western end of the road is the Fish Springs bird preserve where numerous migratory birds take refuge from the desert heat. Dispersed camping can be found at both mineral collecting spots and on the many dirt roads. A 4wd high clearance vehicle isnt necessary but it opens up a lot more options!
