Important Note: The Scenic Drive, used to access this trailhead, will be closed from April 29, 2024 through fall of 2024. See the park page for details: https://www.nps.gov/care/planyourvisit/scenic-drive-rehabilitation-project.htm

Five Mile is one of the trio of canyons that descend off the Waterpocket Fold to the Notom road. Unlike its neighbors Burro and Cottonwood, Five Mile feels like it has many more open sections, though the slot sections are very good. Well worth doing, but I would put Cottonwood first on the list, Burro second, then Five Mile.
