Description

Some scrambling up the slickrock leads to the saddle of the rock formation and yields a great view of both canyons as well as some spectacular spires typical of the Needles landscape. This is a great example of Needles rock formations and desert landscape. Cairns mark the trail especially across the exposed faces of rock that you'll cross. Some areas are quite steep and may make people who fear heights nervous, but are not overly technical. You'll also enjoy gorgeous views of the Big Spring Canyon and Squaw Canyon, and the many unique and visually appealing desert features in the area.

Half-Day Run: Access Squaw Canyon or run the Big Spring Canyon/Squaw Canyon Loop from the trailhead in the Needles Campground.
