Directions to Get There:
Sulphurdale Road is located East of I-15 Just south of I-70.
The County road passes thought private property that is gated and signed No Trespassing. I was able to obtain permission from an employee to travel through and take photographs as long as I did not leave the road.

This wasn't listed on the ghost town site list, but I wanted to contribute it. Should Cove Fort be added as well?
