Monkey Launch Pad
What a horrible history

At the top of the mesa is a government experiment
station, looks spooky. If you entered from Hwy 9,
a couple miles up the road you will see a cement
launch pad surrounded by a fence. This was the
site where they used to launch live monkeys
from cannons. You can do an internet search
and find out the details.

DIRECTIONS:
If beginning on Hwy 9
Turn north on Mesa Road.
If beginning on Kolob Terrace Road
Turn at Smith Mesa Road.
They are the same road, different names.

You will find cool. crisp drinking water at
