Dry Canyon Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nine Mile Canyon Trail, toward the eastern end, head southwest along Dry Creek into the canyon. Dry Canyon has a lot in common with Cottonwood Canyon. Both are narrow and steep-walled and lined with cottonwoods and sagebrush. They are very attractive drives for viewing autumn colors. About 6 or 7 miles into the trail, aspens also become prevalent.

Special Attractions: Moderate 4WD trail that crosses the high West Tavaputs Plateau with its high desert vegetation; Wonderful panoramic vistas from several viewpoints; Dry Canyon with its many cottonwoods, and Water Canyon with its stands of aspen; Fremont Indian petroglyphs and pictographs. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs."
