Description

This is a classic desert trail in a deep canyon. The trail wanders through Reynolds Canyon's high rhyolite walls along an old ditch built in the early 1900s. The ditch was supposed to bring water to Givens Hot Springs, but filled with sand within the first year, making it unusable. The trail makes use of the ditch and can have some serious drop-offs in many sections. The trail is very technical in sections so one needs to stay on their toes.

Since this is horse country, there are a number of faint side trails. Follow the tracks and signs and you'll be fine.

The main parking area has restrooms, a map and is a great place to start this run. Combine this trail with Bingo and the Northwest Passage for a nice long loop.
