Be on the look out for Monarch butterflies, especially in early winter. Pass through the first campgrounds and beyond the intersection of Potato Harbor Road
. ou'll come upon another camping area as well as a bathroom.
The trail continues on counterclockwise as the Scorpion Canyon Loop Trail
, if you want to complete a loop that also uses Smugglers Road
