Description

Theres a small waterfall right at the start of Secret Canyon. Then as you descend into the area you'll see some nice bluffs. There is also a big rock shelter cave just around the bend. There is a nice barrens glade along the north rim as well. Tread lightly if going there.

Half-Day Run: Take Trail #457D to Trail #457.
