General Comments

Upper Sevenmile is a casual day with a few rappels and a lot of easy to moderate downclimbs. The parking area described here is toward the exit from the canyon. I prefer this prefer parking here so walking the dirt road is at the beginning of the route instead of the end.

If you enter the top of this canyon and begin to see water, it may be a good idea to turn around and fins another adventure. The dirt here is very slick clay and can become a huge pain when wet. Some sections of Sevenmile Canyon while easy when dry can become difficult, dirty and not fun when with too much water.

There are to exits for Upper Sevenmile. The early exit is to exit the canyon just before rap 4 and exit to the rim and walk back to the car. The other option is to continue past rap 4 and down to the confluence with Big East Fork and exit to the rim then walk rolling desert back to the car. The route described here is for Exit option 2 but the map shows both exit options.

Driving Directions

To get to the Trailhead

Note:
There are a lot of roads in the Ticaboo Mesa area.  It is difficult to make driving directions simple so a good look at a map is recommended before driving out there the first time.

The junction of highways 95 and 276 is about 26 miles south on highway 95 from Hanksville Utah. 

From the junction of highways 95 and 276, drive south on highway 276 for 25.6 miles to the turn off for a dirt road on the left (east) side of the road (extTicaboo1).  This exit is between mile markers 25 and 26.  Turn left (east) onto the dirt road and drive east.

About 1.5 miles down the dirt road is a junction (TicabooDP-01) to a side road on the right going south.  Continue past the junction driving east on the dirt road.  If you were headed to the Smith Fork area you could turn right and head south here.

About 2 miles farther will be another road junction (TicabooDP-02) for a faint side road on the right going south.  Continue past the junction driving east on the dirt road.

About 0.3 miles farther is a road junction (TicabooDP-03) to a side road on the left.  Veer right and continue past the side road.  This is about as far as a low clearance vehicle show go on this road.  From this point forward there will be intermittent spots of  rough road.

Just after this side road is a fork in the road.  The forks rejoin after a few hundred feet so you can use which ever you like.

The major drainage the road crosses just after the fork is part of the upper portion of Smith Fork.

About 1.7 miles farther will be a junction (TicabooDP-04) to a side road on the right running south.  This road junction is close to Wild Horse Spring.  Continue past this junction and drive north east.

Note:
You can turn right at this side road and follow it south.  About 2.2 miles south it will rejoin with the route described here.  Taking this side road is the shorter route and can save 3.2 miles.  But as of mid 2012 this short cut has a few sections of rough road that may give some vehicles trouble.  For an easier drive in do not take this side road short cut.

About 0.3 miles farther is a junction (TicabooDP-05) for a side road on the left going north over to Colt Spring.  Continue past this junction driving north east.

About 0.5 miles farther is a junction (TicabooDP-06) for a side road on the left going north.  Veer right to continue past the junction driving north east.

About 0.9 miles farther is a junction (TicabooDP-07) for a side road on the right going southwest.  Turn right and follow this side road south toward Seven Mile Creek area.

About 700 feet farther is a fork in the road (extWarmSpring).  At this fork veer right and and travel south toward the Warm Springs area.

Drive the road south for about 2.21 miles 3.6 miles to where the road makes a turn to the left (west).  Park here at this turn (PkMainFork).  There is no specified parking spot here so find a comfortable place to pull off the road near the corner here.

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 (PkMainFork) walk north east up the dirt road for about 0.6 miles.

Leave the road after getting around a minor hill (7MileMn01) off to your right (east) and walk east across rolling desert about 650 feet to subtle saddle. There is no landmark here. Use GPS or good map reading skills to stay on course.

Walk across the desert for about 500 feet to a subtle saddle (7MileMn02) then walk east toward the head of Sevenmile.

About 0.3 miles east is the top of a gully to scramble down (7MileMn03) to get into Sevenmile (y7Mile-Tp). 

The Canyoneering / Technical Section:
Once down in Sevenmile (y7Mile-Tp) walk / scramble south down Sevenmile.

A little over 500 feet down canyon is a short section (7MileMn04) with a couple potholes and short downclimbs. Easily bypassed up and over on the LDC side.

About 400 feet farther is a narrow section (7MileMn05) with a couple small potholes and a downclimb of about 8 feet.

Shortly down canyon is a drop (7MileMn06) of about 15 feet that can be easily downclimbed with a handline set from an anchor. Canyon stays narrow for about 150 feet with one 5 foot downclimb in there.

About 500 feet farther a drainage joins in (7MileMn07) from LDC as the wash opens up to wide easy wash walking. 

About 0.23 miles farther raps 1 and 2.

Rap 1 (d7MileR1-2) is anchored from a rock about 6 feet back and drops about 12 feet over boulders into deep slot.
Rap 2, at the bottom of rap 1 anchored from a large boulder and drops about 15 feet.
Raps 1 and 2 could be combined into one rap but the pull would likely be problematic.
The slot after these raps is short but pretty.

About 650 feet farther is a downclimb (7MileMn08) of about 8 feet over boulders where a handline may be useful but not mandatory. Optionally you could bypass this drop by going up and over on the RDC side.

About 350 feet farther is an easy downclimb (7MileMn09) of about 6 feet. Followed by a couple more shorter downclimbs.

A little over 300 feet farther is rap 3.

Rap 3 (d7MileR3) is anchored from a rock at the top of the drop and drops about 15 feet over a huge boulder to a large hole that will be a super slick muddy mess if water is present.

The canyon stays deep and narrow for about 250 feet down canyon after rap 3 and has 3 easy downclimbs of about 6 feet each.

Shortly down canyon is a downclimb (7MileMn10) of about 15 feet easily slide / downclimbed followed by an 8 foot easy downclimb just before reaching the confluence with the Little East Fork. Both downclimbs drop into areas where water would equal lots of slick clay.

Just after these downclimbs is the bottom of (y7MileLEF-Bt) the Little East Fork of Sevenmile Canyon where it joins in from LDC (east).

Shortly after passing by the bottom of Little East Fork is a set of boulders (7MileMn11) to go under then an 8 foot downclimb on the RDC side of the final boulder.

About 450 feet farther is a deep cross joint (7MileMn12) drops in on the RDC (west) side.

Almost 200 feet farther the LDC side wall looks like you can easily scramble up (7MileMn13-EE) the LDC (east) side to exit here and rim walk up along the north side of Second Guess Fork. This has not been confirmed but looks like it would go.

About 150 feet farther is a section of boulders (7MileMn14) to downclimb through where you can climb down through a rabbit hole. Followed shortly by a 6 foot easy stem style downclimb.

About 300 feet farther is the bottom (ySecondBt) of Second Guess Fork where it drops into Sevenmile Canyon.

About 850 feet farther is the down canyon end (j7MilEx1RP-01) of a section about 150 feet long where the RDC (west) side walls are low and have a few spots where you can scramble up. Scrambling up the down canyon end of this section provides the easiest access.  Continue down canyon past this early exit for about 230 feet to the top of rap 4.

Note:
If you intend to use this early exit, scramble up out of the wash and travel northish up the slopes. Just down canyon of this exit the canyon slots up again and rap 4 is encountered about 230 feet down canyon. If you miss this climb out spot and mistakenly get to rap 4, go back up canyon 230 feet to find this exit.

Rap 4 (d7MileR4) can be anchored from rocks at the top of the drop and drops down the LDC side of a huge boulder a total of about 20 feet over 2 stages around and under a the boulder.

Note:
Skilled downclimbers can downclimb rap 4 with partner assist and a short rope. The first person down can use a handline provided by someone at the top. The first person down can then stay at the bottom of the first stage to partner assist others through the first stage then follow down the second stage which is easy.

About 600 feet farther is a short section (7MileMn15) of boulder debris to walk / boulder hop through.

About 700 feet down canyon is the bottom of a chute (j7MilEx2RP-01) on the RDC (west) side to start the beginning of Exit Two from the Seven Mile Canyon system.  The chute looks like it will be steep and difficult to climb up but actually goes pretty easily.

Note:
This chute may be easily overlooked when traveling down Sevenmile Canyon since it goes up steeply in the up canyon direction.  If you miss this climb out spot you will get to the bottom of Big East Fork about 140 feet down canyon on the LDC (east) side.  If that happens go back up canyon about 140 feet looing for the steep rugged chute.  FYI the confluence with Big East Fork has odd geometry and is also easily overlooked but very obvious when looking for it.  Pay attention so you do not find yourself wondering way down into lower Sevenmile Canyon.

The Exit:
From the base of the chute (j7MilEx2RP-01) start up the chute.  The chute looks like it will be a difficult climb out but actually goes pretty easily.  The first couple hundred feet the chute is steep and has a lot of loose rock so be careful about what you trust.  At the top of the chute you will find yourself on slick rock that is a lot more solid.

From the top of the chute continue northwest following a fault line in the slick rock.  Following up this fault involves walking up a steep slope and a couple short spots of easy scrambling.  About 0.22 miles up the slickrock will top out just after scrambling up another very short chute (j7MilEx2RP-02).

After topping out on the slickrock (j7MilEx2RP-02) you will be on a large dirt ledge / shelf just below the rim.  Right at the top out is also the bottom of a rubble pile to the northwest creating a break in the rim.  Route find your way about 350 feet up the rubble pile to the top of the rim (j7MilEx2RP-03).

To finish the exit up out of Sevenmile walk northwest about 0.55 miles across rolling desert back to the parking spot (PkMainFork).

Note:
If you were going over to the Double Deuce Parking spot you would walk southwest across rolling desert about 0.8 miles going around various small drainages making your way back to that parking spot.

Upper Sevenmile (5) - Exit
  1. y7MileBEF-Bt          Lat/Lon (WGS84):  N 37.65268   W -110.58832        Elev: 4,080 Feet
    Bottom of the Big East Fork of Seven Mile Canyon where it drops into the main fork. If traveling up from below the confluence the Big East Fork is to the right (east) and is visually the larger looking of the two. If traveling down the Big East Fork to here the up canyon direction in the main Seven Mile Creek is small and easily goes un-noticed. About 140 feet up the Main Seven Mile Canyon from here is a chute to start an exit up out of the system to the west.
  2. j7MilEx2RP-01          Lat/Lon (WGS84):  N 37.65299   W -110.58861        Elev: NaN Feet
    Bottom of a chute on the RDC (west) side to start the beginning of Exit Two from the Seven Mile Canyon system. The chute looks like it will be steep and difficult to climb up but actually goes pretty easily. The first couple hundred feet the chute is steep and has a lot of loose rock so be careful about what you trust. Note: This chute may be easily overlooked when traveling down Sevenmile Canyon since it goes up steeply in the up canyon direction. If you miss this climb out spot you will get to the bottom of Big East Fork about 140 feet down canyon on the LDC (east) side. If that happens go back up canyon about 140 feet looing for the steep rugged chute. FYI the confluence with Big East Fork has odd geometry and is also easily overlooked but very obvious when looking for it. Pay attention so you do not find yourself wondering way down into lower Sevenmile Canyon.

    Can park up near the top of Sevenmile but prefer parking here so walking the dirt road is at the beginning of the route instead of the end. No specified parking spot here so find a comfortable place to pull off the road near the corner here. Walk north east up the dirt road for about 0.6 miles.
