We traveled about 13 miles east of Hurricane on Hwy 59 and turned right (south) on Cinder Mountain Road. We drove about 4 miles on Cinder Mountain Road that led up to a Mesa (shown on a USGS map as Little Creek Mountains). Small to medium-size pieces of petrified wood could be found by walking the shallow washes on the mesa.
We discovered the most wood in washes inside and around large rounded white-colored sandstone outcroppings. Whole large trees were buried in the soft soil.

There were campfires and evidence that you could drive into the spot if you really knew your way around. Caution should be used when hiking in the sandstone washes because it is really easy to get turned around and the hot dry desert is unforgiving of mistakes.
We had hiked in to the spot where we found the most wood so we only took out as much as we could carry.

The wood was not particularly agazited but some was covered with beautiful small smoky quartz crystals.
