This is a mellow, family-friendly run with scenic views of the canyon. Expect solitude!

Runner Notes

Generally smooth trail surface (a little eroded at the start), more shade on this trail that you'll find elsewhere.

Description

From the parking lot, head up the wide packed dirt path up a moderate incline. Pass through a pleasantly shaded forest stopping at any of the rock outcroppings along the way to take in the unique northern canyon views. Travel through an area with evidence of past wildfires. Enter a ravine and then arrive at the hugely scenic cliff face. Some folks scramble a bit further up the rocks to reach the best view, but take care!

With a good topo map, you should be able to identify Vishnu Temple, the Vermilion Cliffs and Navajo Mountain, the Colorado River and the Little Colorado River.

Flora & Fauna

Ponderosa pine, aspen, oak, cactus. Kaibab squirrel (white tail).
