“A tight switchback climb from the canyon floor.”— Eric Ashley
Conditions change rapidly with weather events and during spring runoff. Check with the Monticello Ranger District for updated information.
From the trail junction, the first half mile is spent gradually winding through scrubby bushes before tackling the slope. All of the elevation gain is focused into a series of tightly packed switchbacks that end atop the canyon rim on Forest Road 096 (Maverick Point).
While you'll earn some nice views as you slog up the trail, its rocky and rutted nature doesn't make for the most enjoyable run.
