San Rafael Swell Recreation Area

Hondu Arch and Tomsich Butte

Hondu Arch is a large natural opening that rests high above Muddy Creek. The abandoned Dirty Devil Uranium Mines at Tomsich Butte were started by W.J. Hanret and John Tomsich in 1951. The undeveloped Hondu Arch/Tomsich Butte area is rich in opportunities for hiking, camping, mountain biking and exploring. To reach this area, drive 29 miles south on graded roads from I-70 Ranch Exit 129.
