Runner Notes

Charmin soft... easy running packed sand.

Description

Starting at the powerline road, head north along this awesome undulating trail for about a mile and a half. Eventually, it connects with the Cholla Mountain Loop Trail and kisses the Granite Mountain Loop.

The namesake rock is about halfway on the trail.
