This site is within the Manti-LaSal National Forest and the Blanding Community Watershed. It is no longer grazed by livestock. The view is upstream in Cooley Gulch about .1 mile upstream from where the gulch crosses the main forest access road. The once raw streambanks have stabilized with new aspen growth and the establishment of riparian vegetation such as willows, sedges, yellow monkey flower, and cow parsnip. The channel is slowly aggrading.
