Crawford Draw
PreviousSpooky, grey-walled passage in Crawford DrawNext

Crawford Draw and Reid Nelson Draw are two upper tributaries of Eardley Canyon, one of the longest drainages in Utah's San Rafael Swell, and they form nearly a mile of enclosed passageways through nicely eroded, greyish rocks, rather spooky in some of the deeper areas. Part of the upper canyon is permanently flooded, though wading can generally be avoided by using different entry routes to explore specific sections. The slot ends with a nice sequence of curvy potholes, then becomes a still interesting, vertical-walled box canyon, which can be followed for many more miles.

Location: 6 miles along good quality dirt roads, starting from Interstate 70 - details
