Runner Notes

This trail includes steep, rugged running, and very narrow trails with severe exposure. There are spots all along where a fall could result in severe injury or a long freefall. Be realistic and take it slow where necessary.

Description

Starting from Slim Shady Trail near Yavapai Vista trailhead, Hiline is a steep, technical climb to the top of the mesa. Along the way, the trail snakes simultaneously with the cliff edge until topping out with amazing views all around. The trail down the other side includes a long stretch of slick rock as well as several steep chutes until the trail ends at the Baldwin Loop and the west side of Cathedral Rock.
