Runner Notes

Watch your ankles when running across the "alligator back" rock sections.

Description

Start over a few small hills and some interesting "alligator back" rock to run over. After this, you level out on the rim with MILES of amazing views. Continue out to the Big Chief Overlook with views of the potash mine 2,000' below, and all of Moab and the La Sal mountains.

The trail continues around the rim, eventually doubling back on itself on a higher level of the mesa. Great views continue, including good ones of the Henry mountains to the west.
