Day Canyon is the drainage just north of Longs Canyon. Its mouth on the Colorado is roughly 8 miles west of Moab and it runs roughly east/west for 5 miles paralleling Longs Canyon.
You can access Day Canyon from Potash Road roughly two miles north of the mouth of Longs Canyon and a couple miles south of Gold Bar. You can also access the upper reaches of the Canyon (via rappel) off UT 313 and the Dead Horse State Park Road that leads down Longs Canyon.
