Description

The Dry Fork of Bull Canyon is the next canyon south of Bull Canyon in the complex of canyons that drain the Gemini Bridges area north of Big Flat. Though the rock here is Wingate, the area has been uplifted and subjected to greater weathering than lower regions and hence lost the protective Kayenta capstone ubiquitous to other Wingate walls. The result is a generally softer more featured rock than typical. Though relatively close to Moab, this should be considered a remote area, four-wheel drive is a good idea, clearance is mandatory.
RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Getting There

From Little Valley driving up the Gemini Bridges road stay on the main road until coming to a junction with a sign that marks "Bull Canyon left" "Gemini Bridges right" take the left branch. Here the road starts to get rougher as it descends into Bull Canyon/Dry Fork. after .5 miles (approx) the road splits again, the right fork leads to Bull Canyon, the left leads towards Dry Fork and Two-Tortoise Rock. Take the left fork which drives along the wash bottom, watch for an inobvious right hand turn after a short distance (.25 miles approx.) Take this turn and follow it into Dry Fork. The road here is decent for the most part though you might need four wheel drive where the road crosses the wash in several spots. The canyon eventually opens up into a narrow valley, there's an old cattle trough on the north side of the road, just past this on the same side of the valley the routes will be fairly obvious.
