Description

This trail is accessed from a pull out parking area off the main park road near the 9 mile marker.

Descend about 500 feet through a wooded gully and parallel a wash. The trail ends at the intersection with the Under-the-Rim Trail. The Swamp Canyon backcountry campsite is just north of this junction (no facilities or water).

Although it is primarily used by backpackers wishing to reach (or escape from) the approximate midpoint of the Under-the-Rim Trail, it does provide more casual users with access to the rim and a way to see the great views over Mud Canyon (continue 0.15 miles north on the Under-the-Rim Trail).

Flora & Fauna

Juniper trees, white fir and ponderosa pine.
