“This trail provides straightforward backcounty access to the Under-the-Rim Trail and Right Fork Camp.”— Megan W
After the right-hand turn onto the Swamp Canyon Connecting Trail, you'll be heading south before immediately dropping below the canyon rim. Thread between high stone towers in a forested valley. The grade eases as you approach the canyon floor. This trail ends at a junction with the Under-the-Rim Trail very near the Right Fork Swamp Canyon backcountry campsite. From here, Swamp Canyon Butte is visible to the south.
If you're planning to make a loop that combines Sheep Creek Connecting Trail, Under-the-Rim Trail and the Swamp Canyon Connecting Trail, the preferred direction is clockwise.
