If you were to journey up Bullion Canyon from the town of Marysvale, Utah, it would seem quiet and peaceful—a small, pretty gorge lined by fir trees and rocky slopes with a burbling creek running through it. But well over a century ago, in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it was a very different scene. Sometime around 1865, prospectors discovered gold in the canyon, and miners flocked to the area in droves. Miners’ Park, and the self-guided driving tour on the road that leads to it, are fun ways to learn about the heyday of gold mining activity in Utah’s “Canyon of Gold.” You can also stretch your legs and hike out to a beautiful 50-foot waterfall while you’re at it.
