“A fantastic loop with running that's fun for everyone.”— Nicholas Shannon
There are also a series of signs along the way to educate the public on the local terrain and ecology.
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.
