General Comments

Note:
This route description is so far only written for the upper portion of the Main Fork of Bluejohn Canyon down to the confluence with the East Fork.  I have not yet been down canyon of the confluence with the East Fork.

The upper portion of the Main Fork of Bluejohn Canyon is very scenic and worth the visit to see.  The section of canyon from the head down to the confluence with the East Fork can be downclimbed and upclimbed.  This allows choices for what route you take.  You can go down the Main Fork to the confluence with the East Fork then reverse the route and upclimb the Main Fork.  You can go down to the East Fork then use the East Fork Exit (or other exits in the area).  Or you can drop down a different fork of Bluejohn Canyon (like the East Fork or the Squeeze Fork) and use the Main Fork as the exit option so you get two forks of Bluejohn in one route.  Lots of Choices.

The description here is to drop down the Main Fork then choose to upclimb the Main Fork or use the East Fork exit.  Personally I would choose to drop down the East Fork or Squeeze Fork of Bluejohn Canyon then use the Main Fork as the exit.  If you also choose that option see the route descriptions for the East and Squeeze Forks.

While the drops in the Main Fork can be downclimbed or Upclimbed they are more than a simple scramble which is why a technical rating of 3 was chosen.  Some of the drops are climbed in a stemming style with back on one wall and feet on the other.  If you are new to this style of downclimbing or upclimbing do bring rope and do not plan to upclimb the canyon.

Near the head of the canyon in the first 700 feet are about 6 drops ranging from 6 to about 25 feet to downclimb.  Down canyon of that is a deep tall narrow canyon for a long ways with only a couple short easy downclimbs.  Part of the deep narrows is known as the Cathedral and has the walls closing in over head giving a subterranean feel.

Exit options 1 and 2.
If using Exit Option 1 and climbing up out of the East Fork of Bluejohn, note that there are few easily identifiable landmarks to get you to the correct location.  Good map reading skills and or GPS will be helpful locating the start of the route described here.  There are likely multiple spots to walk / scramble to the mesa top above so you can also wing it and find a slightly different way up to the mesa top to use this exit option.

If using Exit Option 2 and reversing your route to climb back up the Main Fork be prepared to upclimb anything you downclimb.  Evaluate each drop and be sure you can get back up it before you drop down it.

Navigation Warning:
The terrain here is very forgiving which means two things.  1. you can find lots of different ways and trails to get where you want to be.  2. You can very easily get lost if you do not pay attention to your navigation.

On the approach to the East Fork and the Squeeze Fork of Bluejohn Canyon you will encounter many use trails.  Some go where you want them to, others do not.  You may have been shown or found on your own a route you prefer.  The route described here seems to be one of the more direct and easy to travel routes.  Do not get careless with your navigation here which could easily lead to dropping into the wrong canyon.  Keep a close eye on your map and or GPS and be sure you are where you need / want to be.

Driving Directions

To get to the Trailhead

From the junction of Highways 24 and 95 in Hanksville Utah, drive north on Highway 24 about 16.2 miles to a turn off for a dirt road on the right (east) side of the road (ExtRobRoost).  This turn off is just across the highway from the Little Gilson Butte.

Drive east on the un-named dirt road continuing past a small building with a water tank about 0.5 miles from the highway.  This small building and tank is close to what some maps label as Gilson Butte Well (wGilsonButeWel).  

About 2.0 miles from the highway will be an intersection with a major dirt road (extFlintTrail1).  Some maps have this road labeled as the Flint Trail and other have it labeled as the Lower San Rafael Road.  Turn right (south) on to this large dirt road.  

After turning onto the Lower San Rafael Road, drive 4.1 miles to where the road turns left (east) and passes by a large corral (wJefferyWell).  This turn in the road is next to what is labeled as Jeffery Well on some maps.

After passing Jeffery Well drive east about 2.8 miles and pass through a gate which is on the south side of the Little Flat Top (wLittleFltTpGt).  This gate is also at the top out of the road.

Continue beyond the gate following the road east then slowly turning toward the south and passing along the south side of The Big Flat Tops.  About 6.0 miles after the gate will be a turn off to a road on the right (extFlintTrail2).  Stay left and continue east on the Lower San Rafael Road.

Continuing east, stay on the very obvious main road ignoring small occasional un-signed side roads for about 9.4 miles to a major junction (extHansFlat).  At this junction are signs for Hans Flat to the right (south).  This is where you will leave the Lower San Rafael Road by turning right (south) onto the Hans Flat Road towards Hans Flat Ranger station.

Drive south on the Hans Flat Road for 7.1 miles to another large junction with signage at it (extBurrEkker).  This is a junction of 3 roads (Hans Flat Road continuing south, Burr Pass Road going west and Ekker Ranch Road going southwest).  Stay on the Hans Flat road by staying straight to continue south.

Drive the Hans Flat road another 2.6 miles to an unmarked side road (extGranarySpng) joining in from the left (east).  Turn left and follow this road east for about 0.2 miles to the Motel 6 area near Granary Spring (pkMotel6)

Note:
The roads appear to be well maintained and should be easily traveled by passenger cars all the way to Motel 6 / Granary Spring unless recent rains have messed stuff up.

To leave the Exit Vehicle / Escape Pod

No exit vehicle is needed.  This is done as a loop route.

Details

The Approach:
From the parking spot at Motel 6 / Granary Spring (pkMotel6) walk due east a little over 500 feet to drop down into the bottom of a large drainage.  The large drainage is the upper non-technical portion of Bluejohn Canyon Main Fork.

Turn left and walk north down stream.  A few hundred feet down canyon will be a spring that has been piped up to large water containers for local cattle (wBJC-MF-Spring).

About 0.25 miles down stream will be a fork (wBJC-MF-RP05 ).  On the way down stream this fork will be easily missed and likely not noticed.  However when traveling but up canyon which you will do when using either of the exits described here this fork can be confusing.  Both forks are fairly large and you may not know which way to turn on the way back up.  Take note of this spot and remember you came down the right fork here.

About 1.3 miles down the wide open wash will be a short dry fall to scramble down (wBJC-MF-RP08).

A little over 0.22 miles down stream is the top of the technical portion of the Main Fork of Bluejohn Canyon (yBJC-MF-Tp) where you will find a dry fall of about 20 feet.

The Canyoneering / Technical Section:
When you reach the top of the dry fall (yBJC-MF-Tp) bypass this fall by first going around the top of the fall on the LDC side then downclimb to the mid point and traverse over to the RDC to scramble down to the wash below.

Continue down canyon as the canyon gets deeper and more narrow.  About 0.25 miles down canyon of the dry fall you bypassed at the head is the top of the downclimbs (wBJC-MF-RP10) to get down into the deeper portion of the Main Fork.

There are about 6 drops ranging from 6 to about 25 feet.  If you plan to reverse your route for the exit be sure to evaluate each drop and be sure you can get back up it before dropping down it.  All the drops can be downclimbed or upclimbed depending on conditions and your skill level.  The larger drops are generally done in a stem style with back on one wall and feet on the other wall.  If you do not feel comfortable with the drops you can use chokestones to set anchors for rappel.  You will likely find a few anchors already in place.

After getting down the drops to get down into the deep corridor enjoy walking and an occasional short easy downclimb.  In this deep long corridor there is one section where the walls overhead close in and almost touch which is called the Cathedral.  The corridor extends for about a mile before opening up briefly (wBJC-MF-RP12).

Next is another deep narrow section that runs only about 900 feet before opening up again where a side drainage drops in from the LDC (west) side (yBJC-LWF-Bt).  This side canyon is known as the Little West Fork of Bluejohn Canyon or sometimes as Little Bluejohn Canyon.

Continue down canyon in a wider wash like area for about 0.3 miles to a short and shallow narrows that extends only about 300 feet.  After getting to the down canyon end of the short shallow narrows (wBJC-MF-RP14) continue down wide wash.

About 0.63 miles down canyon is a side drainage dropping in from the LDC (west) side (yBJC-WF-BT).  This side drainage is the West Fork of Bluejohn Canyon.

About 350 feet down canyon is the confluence with the East Fork of Bluejohn Canyon (yBJC-EF-Bt).  Of note this is the only wide sandy wash bottomed drainage to drop in from the RDC (east) side if you were traveling down from the head of the Main Fork.  This makes it easy to identify and know you made it to the confluence with the East Fork.

I have not been farther down the Main Fork so I have no info on the lower portions yet.

The Exit:
There are a few ways to exit this area.  The two options here take you back to the Motel 6 / Granary Spring area.  Option 1 is to totally exit the canyon using the East Fork exit and walk back to Motel 6 / Granary Spring.  Option 2 is to reverse your route and upclimb the Main Fork of Bluejohn Canyon then walk up the wash back to Motel 6 / Granary Spring.  Obviously option 2 is more work but may also be more fun?

Exit Option 1:  - Completely exit the canyon and walk back to Motel 6 / Granary Spring
The start of this exit up out of the East Fork does not have easy to identify landmarks so GPS or good map reading skills should get you to the correct spot.

From the confluence (yBJC-EF-Bt) turn right and walk south up the East Fork of Bluejohn Canyon about 0.33 miles to where you see a side drainage / ravine dropping down from the northwest.  Next continue up the East Fork about 0.28 miles farther to where you see another side drainage on the northwest that is much smaller.  The exit starts up along the up canyon side of this drainage (jBJC-EF-Exit1).

Note:
There are likely many ways to scramble up to the mesa top above on the northwest side of the East Fork.  I have not confirmed from experience, but it should also be relatively easy to start the exit up to the mesa from the confluence (yBJC-EF-Bt).  If you wish to try this out start from the confluence and walk / scramble southwest up between the East and Main Forks of Bluejohn.  About 0.3 miles up the slope you will be up on the wide open spaces of the mesa top where it will be a flat easy walk about 0.5 miles over to where the exit described below gets up onto the mesa top (wBJC-EF-EXRP02).

The start of the scramble up out of the East Fork (jBJC-EF-Exit1) is next to a small side drainage / ravine.  Start by route finding your way west up out of the East Fork along dirt and sandstone about 200 feet to the start of a slickrock ramp (wBJC-EF-ExRP01).

Continue route finding your way west up the slickrock for about 650 feet where the route tops out (wBJC-EF-ExRP02) on the mesa top above.

Once up on the mesa top veer left to start walking south along wide open desert between the East and Main forks of Bluejohn Canyon.  Look for one of the use trails in the area.  As you start walking south along the mesa top stay in the easy flat desert but keep slightly left (east) and roughly follow the rim of the East Fork of Bluejohn.

About 0.7 miles along the mesa you will pass by the head of a drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP03) that drops down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

At this point you will no longer be trying to follow the rim of the East Fork but instead you will follow a pretty straight path southwest on a bearing of about 278 degrees toward the top of the Main Fork.  From this point forward a hillside begins to form on the left (east) side and the use trails follow in the flat-ish desert between the hillside on the left (east) and going around the heads of small drainages to the right (west). As you continue this route the use trails begin to get more defined and easier to follow.

About 900 feet farther the route passes by the top of another side drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP04) dropping down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

About 1100 feet farther the route passes by the top of another side drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP05) dropping down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

About 450 feet farther the route crosses over another drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP06) but at this point the drainage is just a shallow dirt wash. Continue south on use trails.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

About 600 feet farther the route passes by the top of another side drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP07) dropping down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

About 550 feet farther the route passes by the top of another side drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP08) dropping down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

Between this drainage and the next the route will pass by the right (west) side of a large rock outcropping that has been visible for a while now.

About 0.25 miles farther the route passes by the top of another side drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP09) dropping down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

About 400 feet farther the route passes by the top of another side drainage (wBJC-EF-ExRP10) dropping down to the right (west) down toward the Main Fork of Bluejohn.  Pass by the drainage and continue south along the flat desert.

A little over 300 feet farther the use trail drops down into the Main Fork of Bluejohn Canyon just above the technical section (yBJC-MF-Tp)

About 100 feet up the wash is a short dry fall (wBJC-MF-RP17) with dirt slopes you can scramble up.  When you get to the top of the short fall continue walking south up the wide sandy wash.

Continue walking up the wide sandy wash ignoring little side washes here and there.  About 1.3 miles up the wash will be a wide fork (wBJC-MF-RP16) where you may wonder which is the main drainage to stay in.  Stay right at this fork to continue south.

Continue up the wash about 0.25 miles until you get to a spring piped up from the ground and into large water containers for local cattle (wBJC-MF-Spring).  From the spring you are about 800 feet from the Motel 6 / Granary Spring area.  Continue up the wash about 300 feet and look for any one of many social trails leaving up out of the wash to the right (west) and follow them up to the Motel 6 parking area (pkMotel6). 

Exit Option 2: - Up climb the Main Fork of Bluejohn Canyon then walk up the Main fork to Motel 6 / Granary Spring
To use this exit simply turn around and retrace your route. 

The main thing to remember for this is the fork in the wash (wBJC-MF-RP05) where you may not know which way to turn since both forks are wide and appear to be a main drainage.  When you get there stay right to continue up the right fork.

Also remember when you get tot eh spring that has been piped up to the watering containers (wBJC-MF-Spring) it is time to start looking for social trails leaving up out of the Main Fork drainage leading back to your car parked at Motel 6 / Granary Spring (pkMotel6).
