Thistle Landslide

Did you know that the Thistle Landslide and immediate area has continued to move intermittently since the 1983 wet year? Minor mudslides (earth flows) periodically occur near its flanks and head. Following a wet winter, almost the entire slide (except for the “dam” section) moved in spring of 1998. This 1998 reactivation also enlarged the head of the slide by an area about the size of several football fields. Read more about the Thistle landslide on the Utah Geological Survey site.

Fast facts

Wireless Service: Only a few wireless services work in Hideaway Valley. Sprint seems to work OK in most areas and making calls is easy. However, receiving calls is a problem. In addition, a Sprint user canot get their customer service from Hideaway--they will get Alltel customer service. Radio Shack in Mt. Pleasant deals with Sprint and Alltel. Alltel owns the local tower and so Alltel phones work the best.  Be sure to mention that you found them though the Hideaway Valley web page.
