Trail shared by Tom Dobson

A singletrack dream come true.

Runner Notes

Lace em up tight - this is a wild ride!

Description

Unbelievable singletrack high above the Colorado River and the signage is easy to follow. The entire trail is marked with paint and cairns along the slick rock.

This trail can be completed in either direction, but we started at the top of the hill at the intersection with the Pothole Arch Trail.

Those first few downhill sections are pretty scary downhill scrambles. Hold on tight and roll across slick rock for about 2 miles before connecting to the Jacksons Trail. The trail twists and turns along the cliff face the whole way.
