USA Factory Butte

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Iconic butte located in the “Upper Blue Hills” of Wayne County, Utah. The 6,302-foot (1,921 m) butte was so named by early settlers who thought its outline resembled a huge factory building.

Photography Tips

Very good early morning/late afternoon location. The mancos shale, mud flats, and sandstone topography in the area make for endless possibilities for photo compositions. A short drive down a dirt road 3 or 4 miles east of the butte takes you to Skyline Rim, overlooking a vast badlands area.

Travel Information

From Hanksville, Utah drive 11 miles (17.7Km) west on Highway 24 to Coal Mine Road and turn right. The road runs along the eastern side of the butte and curves around the northern end of the butte. There’s a vault toilet just off of 24. There’s ample parking just north of the highway in a very large open area and all along Coal Mine Road.
