Runner Notes

Not great for trail running because of its grade and the multitude of rocks.

Description

The starting point for this run is at a gravel parking area off of Highway 93 across from Kingman Wash Road. The route proceeds downhill in a series of washes toward the Colorado River, passing a tepid hot springs area just before reaching the river. A grouping of palm trees straddle the bank, waiting for you to visit.

When the river levels are down, there is a hidden seasonal waterfall upstream in a side canyon that is impressive. The route provides lots of boulder scrambling. It can be done as an out-and-back run for a distance of 4 miles or a loop run of up to 5 miles. Total elevation gain is 550 feet on the return leg.

Flora & Fauna

Big horn sheep. Red barrel cactus.

History & Background

There was once just one palm tree there which has since died, but now there is a grouping of small palm trees.
