Trail Description This canyon is a famous hide out for Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch. It's rough ground is why the posses of the day didn't often pursue the Wild Bunch into this area. This ride is very challenging. But the views are breathtaking.

Additional Info
Directions The gravel road that heads East and accesses the San Rafael Swell is just a block or two South of the fairgrounds. You will have to follow this gravel road 15-20 miles. It is a rough road. I wouldn't recommend really large LQ type trailers. Most of the gas stations, C-Stores in town can give directions.
