I unintentionally found myself there a few years ago, thinking I was going from Middle to South Park. When the trail (which had been driven prior to me) abruptly ended at a dry waterfall at the top of the Big Horn narrows, I knew then that this was not Middle Park Canyon!
Agreed, very remote. According to USGS map, the road crosses the wash in the 'Altiplano' then turns west toward the crest. My mistake was following the tracks that continued west down the wash.
BLM wilderness starts down by the narrows somewhere but it was not signed. The entire status of the DVNP portion of the road to the 'Altiplano' is iffy. Since it is not shown on DVNP maps as a road, it might be technically considered closed, although it, too, was not signed.
