Blackburn Wash Road is the southern gateway trail to the vast San Rafael Desert and so much more. Butch Cassidy's hide-out was hidden deep in these canyons. The trail crosses a barren desert with beautiful views of rugged canyons within the Dirty Devil Wilderness area. The trail is a mix of graded gravel and sections of blowing soft sand. For the most part, it's a well-maintained gravel road, but ruts and washboards can be rough on suspension. The route can be completed in high clearance camper vans and trucks with camper tops. While the camping was limited to a few spectacular spots, they'll likely be unoccupied because of the remoteness.
