villanousturtlePoison Springs Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2014
We drove down Poison Spring Canyon 11.2 miles, took the fork on the left up the really bad old Miner's track another 4.7 miles, and then we hiked around ten miles round trip into the canyon. Didn't see a soul and no footprints crossing the Dirty Devil. 7 hours hiking, 6 hours driving (3 Each way) for 13 hours pavement to pavement from Highway 95. Incredible canyon. Want to go back.

Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2014


Well I'm pretty new to exploring in Utah and I didn't actually get down to the Dirty Devil or the Happy Canyon narrows, but I spent a couple nights at Burr Point and a long day exploring all over Bert Mesa and really fell in love with this area. There is quite an impressive dugway leading down to the mesa and out near the highpoint of the mesa I stumbled across the site of a plane crash where 2 men died back in 1983. Lots of debris and a plaque. I can't wait to get back here and do the Miners Rappel and get down to the river for some more exploring, but I'll have to either get some climbing gear and leave the dogs behind next time or take the Poison Springs route. I hope no one is actually reading this because I would like to have the place to myself again when I return!

We drove the rode down poison spring in a honda passport made it pretty far just short of were the bluff turns north along the dirty devil and decided to camp there. great views of the canyon. next day set out for happy along old miners track. Couldnt find the trail markers down to happy so blazed our own trail and got cliffed out multiple times and had to traverse till we found the trail. found happy and walked till the slot ends. nothing to technically a couple body planks over water and some rock climbing. no rope or wetsuit needed. Then headed back to the car aka poison spring canyon. 18-19 miles round trip but very flat most of the way.

I did this one with my wife Kimberly from the Poison Springs Canyon area over President's Day Weekend 1999.

We spend three days exploring the area. The river is quite cold in February, but I've crossed it several times then.
