Can anyone tell me where Hammond Canyon is?

And how do I get there? Is it a long hike or can it be seen or accessed from the road?

This is kind of a "stump the advisors" question.

I did an internet search and found quite a few websites with the info you're looking for.

Get a hold of the Kelsey non-technical guide book. Directions are in there.

Yes, I found a lot of websites also that talk about the canyon but no one really mentions where they go to access it. I did however find it on a topographical map and was able to get the GPS coordinates. Then, Mapquest gave me a route to those coordinates, so perhaps I'll be able to find it when I get there! We're writing a book on the Hammond it was named for so we just thought we like to at least see the area. Thanks!

Since you're posting this in the Blanding forum you might ask at the Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum. There are some real local experts there. You might try calling on the phone, too.

It is very easy to get to. Directions are in the book Ruins Seldom Seen. Trailhead can be accessed by a regular car on the Elk Ridge Road.
