“A great moderate trail leading to spectacular rock formations.”— JC Condon
The trail is sandy and flat for about half a mile and then the steep, punchy climb begins. Head out of the wash up some steep steps and then follow the cairns and chopped rock steps up towards the obvious rock formation at the top of the slope (Note: Be careful to follow the large *cemented* cairns. There are a ton of small cairns placed by other visitors that may lead you off-trail). Once at the top you can wander around and explore the formation.
When you have had your fill at the amphitheater head back the way you came to the parking lot, or check out the other trails in the area. Echo Canyon Trail, Serpents Trail, and Old Gordon Trail are all great options and can easily fill a full day of running.
