The dirt access route runs easterly across the Burr Desert flat lands ending at the cliff tops of the Dirty Devil River. Views across, up, and down the canyon are stunning and have as backdrops the Abajos, the La Sal, and the Henry Mountains. Burr Point Overlook is also occasionally used as a trailhead to access the Dirty Devil River. This access however has been described as challenging, techincal, and risky. There are no developed facilities at Burr Point Overlook.
The Dirty Devil River is an 80-mile-long tributary of the Colorado River. It flows through southern Utah from the confluence of the Fremont River and Muddy Creek before emptying into the Colorado River at Lake Powell. Here it is meandering around Gibex Point, past Sam's Mesa on it's way toward The Big Ridge.
