This is a great sinkhole to visit. It does require a high-clearance vehicle and having a 4 wheel-drive will help smooth out the ride.
To get there, take highway US89 in southern Utah. At mile 43.5 (N37° 04.323' & W112° 10.374') turn south and go across the cattleguard and follow this road. It will "Y" into another road (N37° 3.684' & W112° 09.530') and you will be heading west. Go a short distance and watch for a "T" road to the left (south)(N37° 03.510' & W112° 09.744'). If you cross a cattle guard you went too far. Take the "T" and follow it to another "Y" (there is now a sign pointing to Eagle Sink N37° 03.106' & W112° 09.251') and go to the right. Stay on this road the rest of the way there. You will come to another (a 3rd) "Y" and may take either fork as they come back together with in a 100 yds or so, but the right is the better road. You will know you are getting close when you see a sheer vertical wall on the left. That is your target. It can be seen from the highway from several miles away (over 5 miles away!). This sinkhole is shown on the topo map. We parked at N37° 01.551' & W112° 07.589'.
Make sure to keep an eye on the kids and pets if you have them along. If heights bother you, you can still view this sinkhole from the safety behind the fence row.
We recommend NOT going here if it is raining or has just rained in the last day or two. The road turns to a nasty slippery clay mud bog. Don't forget the camera and perhaps a picnic lunch.
We have seen many different critters in this area, so keep a watch out. We have seen deer, rabbit, hawks, eagles (both bald and golden), snakes (both poisonous and non-toxic), etc.
Notice the guy in the white shirt.
Notice the 2 guys under the red arrow.
The blue arrow indicates the fault line and the yellow arrows show how much shifting has occurred.
