Update

Exciting trail with petrified wood and a steep, narrow, sharp edged ridge descent.

Runner Notes

Watch out for rattlesnakes, cattle and wet trails. When wet the trail is very slippery due to the bentonite clay. Also, runners must yield the right of way to horse riders and be respectful when approaching from behind to not spook the horses. Carry a map to make sure you stay on the correct path instead of following the cattle trails.

Description

At the trail junction from the I Trail, follow the signs for the PS Trail to the left and wind around the buttes. The trail then separates again, but is difficult to navigate due to a missing marker. The trail heads left across some badlands formation instead of down into the gully to the right. The trail to the right is the AP Trail.

The trail passes some spectacular petrified wood and climbs up to the top of a long ridge system. The ridge is steep and has drop offs on either side; use caution. Descend until a cattle water trough is reached marking the end of the PS Trail. From here take the T Trail either direction to continue.
