Getting forecast...

A very technical Moab-style trail. You'll see arches, petroglyphs, & other cool features.

Overview

The terrain is rocky and sandy with short, steep ascents. Some highlights you'll see are arches, petroglyphs, a granary, views of Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area, killer singletrack above Hunter Rim Trail and Gatherer Canyon, and a spring.

Runner Notes

At the start of Pritchett Canyon there is a $1 fee to cross private property.

Description

This 12.4-mile loop has long, rugged sections in Pritchett Canyon and Hunter Canyon Rim Trail. Hunter Canyon Rim Trail has high, exposed singletrack and is above Gatherer Canyon. There are a few rock arches in Pritchett Canyon and a granary up a side drainage just before the Hunter Canyon Rim Trail singletrack.

Most people complete this route clockwise, starting at Pritchett Canyon and end at Gatherer Canyon. The only major turn is at the Pritchett Canyon/Behind the Rocks/Hunter Rim Junction. Turn right at this junction onto the Hunter Canyon Rim Trail.

Starts out on an off road vehicle path. Once the trail becomes singletrack, advanced route finding required. Fun, sandy, and scrambly! 14.2mi

Awesome canyon run. First half is super technical jeep trail. Second half is incredible downhill single track. Beat the heat. Go early.
