“A gentle trail that leads visitors through the pinyon and juniper forests located at the rim of the canyon.”— Mikhaila Redovian
Visitors be able to enjoy this trail as it gently meanders away from the rim, opting instead to wind among juniper and pinyon trees. Along the way, a sprinkling of mahogany might be seen, and open meadows will be crossed as well. The scent from the various pines gives this route a distinctly desert feel.
As you run, keep an eye out for the full time residents of the area. Small birds and mammals depend on the nutrient rich pinyon nuts and juniper berries for survival, and away from the hubbub of the visitor's center, you're more likely to see them here.
