This trail's unique surroundings and often rocky tread makes this a fun obstacle course for those looking to challenge themselves. Be careful in the damp, and be prepared for wet shoes.
The Interior Canyon Trail
offers visitors a distinct traverse that's a bit of a hodgepodge as it alternates between stairs, rocky sections, and smooth trail throughout. When you're not busy figuring out how best to get from point A to B, the terrific canyon this trail follows provides a wonderful array of waterfalls, crevices, and pools to view. When in doubt, follow the green marker posts to stay on trail.
There's a pretty good chance runners will get their feet wet when water levels are high.
