DescriptionThe Green Canyon CWMU is southeast of Hyrum, Utah and northeast of Paradise, Utah. The High-point of the Unit is 8200 feet. This ridge line runs from the 8200 feet towards Hyrum and 6200 feet before it decreases sharply to about 5000 feet. To the north of this ridge the Unit drops into Blacksmith Fork Canyon, ranging from 4900 feet in the west to 5000 feet in the east. On the south the main ridge line drops into Green Canyon with elevation ranging from 6000 feet to 8000 feet. The Unit rises out of Green Canyon to an elevation around 8000 feet. The most common elevation is 7600 feet but ranges from 4800 feet to 8200 feet with an elevation difference of 3400 feet. Fifty-one percent (51%) of the CWMU elevation ranges between 5600 feet and 7400 feet an elevation difference of 1800 feet.
