Going up Robbers Roost Canyon is simple and somewhat uneventful for several miles. Intermittent water runs in the canyon floor. In many spots the water’s sulfur content lessens its desirability as a source of drinking water; watch for spots with greater flow. Also, some of the small side canyons and clefts in the high walls contain seeps with cleaner water. These are usually evidenced by increased vegetation, especially cottonwood trees, and occasionally by footpaths that seem to lead nowhere.
