Description

Murphy Wash intersects the White Rim Road before it drops down the White Rim to reach the Green River. Head northeast and follow the wide wash. The ground may be covered with a white crystalline layer as you make your way up. Following the meandering wash as it gradually narrows. You'll even come across an old abandoned building before a 6 foot dry fall that can be easily climbed on the side. The canyon narrows further with more and more boulders in your way. Reach Murphy Hogback Trail after 2.7 miles.
