“A steep climb from the bottom of Scorpion Canyon to the plateau above.”
— Luke Snow
The trail is rocky and gravely, and traction can be hard to come by.
This trail begins the ascent to Montanon Ridge and is quite steep in parts, especially if you have a pack. The first three-quarters of a mile are flat and casual. However, as soon as the trail bears southeast it steepens dramatically and becomes a strenuous climb. Expect towering canyon views that gradually shifts to a sweeping overlook of the plateau and bluffs of the east island. The trail rocky and gravely, so be prepared for a rugged run.
