“A short side canyon off of Arch Canyon”— Eric Ashley
Conditions change rapidly with weather events and during spring runoff. Check with the Monticello Ranger District for updated information.

From the intersection with the Arch Canyon Trail (002), you'll soon leave the ponderosa pines behind as you travel up the canyon floor. This trail is infrequently maintained and quite faint. You'll spend a lot of time crossing over and running through the perennial stream. Make sure to bring appropriate footwear and plan on getting wet.
The trail continues for .8 miles beneath striped canyon walls to end at a 100-yard section of stream bed formed by slickrock.
