This is the west desert and this ride is mostly flat. You will be looking at two of the tallest landmarks for miles around, but they are worth exploring. A small amount of paved, but mostly dirt roads and trails. This is the driest part of the state, bring water, even on a cool day!.
If you keep an eye out, you will be able to follow signs from Delta to Topaz and from Topaz there is only one route to the northwest.

Another Volcanic Feature in Utah’s Geothermal West Desert. Be sure to bring your swim suit, flip flops and a towel!

The Fumarole Loop does require Street Legal to make the trip. For this adventure head north and west out of Delta and follow the signs to the Topaz Internment Camp. These roads are paved most of the way to the camp. It is worth the time to stop there and ponder the fact that we made prisoners out of American citizens during the war. From there head north on dirt roads towards Baker Hot Springs. When you cross pavement, turn right and then again to the left when you see a stop sign. When you see the vault toilet, you are at Baker. Baker hot springs is open year round and it is one of the few places where you will find people congregating in the west desert (outside of a city). Sometimes it is busy, sometimes you are all alone. There is a vault toilet at the springs. Heading north from the springs towards the volcano cone, the roads change from maintained and wide enough for two vehicles to narrow dual track paths that make their way around the volcano. If you want to get the best picture of the cone, you will have to plan on a short hike, but you can drive pretty close.
