From the 4WD White Rim Road pullout at Upheaval Bottom, the Upheaval Canyon Trail heads through a wide, sandy wash. Follow the wash for the length of this trail. Occasional cairns directing you out of the wash mark shortcuts around obstacles. Keep an eye out for a natural stone arch high on the north side of the trail about 0.5-mile from the trailhead. The Upheaval Canyon Trail ends after 3.8 miles at the junction with the southern half of the Syncline Loop Trail.
