“A relatively flat run that takes runners through the bottom of a nice canyon bottom walled in by sandstone cliffs.”— John Scalese
You can choose to run the loop either direction. The following is for running in a counterclockwise direction. Be sure to stay left the intersection with Trail F2 about 1.75 miles in (taking F2 leads to a longer option that connects to the Pollock Bench P1 trail, which allows a longer run back to the parking lot).
Another .75 miles (approximately) brings runners to the junction with the D1 - Devils Canyon junction. Stay left here and follow F1 toward the parking (D1 will bring runners into the Devils Canyon area; a link-up will be longer and involve dirt road time).
