This is the longest hike on a trail accessed by White Rim Road. It’s a great trail, mostly on packed sand. The first part of Upheaval Canyon is a broad open valley, and the trail cuts off the wide meanders. After the first mile or so, it drops into the dry wash. The broad valley you saw on the first part of the hike gradually becomes a narrow, twisting canyon just before you reach the junction with the Syncline Loop Trail.This hike also makes a fairly easy overnighter, with a backcountry campsite located near the junction with the Syncline Loop Trail.
