Trail shared by Nick Wilder

An outstanding section of the Dead Horse Point network.

Description

Starts off on the top of the mesa with kind of generic desert running until you get to the rim. Now the views are spectacular and the trail becomes a fun roller coaster among small rock formations. Smooth and flowing, this is an example of some of the finest trail-building around.

Note you can cut this trail off short by taking Prickly, but you'll miss all the fun parts.
