Technical singletrack and slickrock - Incredible!!

Runner Notes

Lace em up tight... This trail has huge elevation changes.

Description

We made our way from the top down but you can start at the Kane Creek Trailhead. Either way the signage is easy to follow.

Head down the slickrock and follow the paint/cairn trail markings the whole way. When the rock runs out, you'll be running through tall grass and some wetlands. You'll have a few small stream crossing at the bottom in that wetland area. Two options here - follow the trail, or go upstream for a shallower crossing.

Be sure to get out early to beat the sun.
