Overview

This is a mild and relatively short loop on the east side of BLM lands where the scenery is fantastic.

There are also a series of signs along the way to educate the public on the local terrain and ecology.

Need to Know

Run in a clockwise direction only.

Description

The run starts out with a moderate incline on a doubletrack dirt road. It's fairly steep but doesn't last too long before leveling out on mellow singletrack.

The singletrack winds gently up and down for a bit as it makes it's way right up to the edge of the rim, well above the Colorado river. The trail's exposure gives an overwhelming sense of the massiveness of this area. There are also a few opportunities to walk out to the edge of the rim and look down on the river. The trail then heads back inland from the river and descends over slickrock-type terrain.

The trail climbs a bit more up some rocky but mostly gentle sections before descending gently back to the start.
