Overview

A loop that utilizes some well-traveled roads and some lesser-traveled trails.
Summer is too hot to run this loop during the day, but don't run it at night if you don't know the area.

Description

Park at the end of the pavement on Mormon Mesa Road. Run the flats on the heavily used dirt road up the Mesa. Once on top take a left going north, taking the most well-traveled path. Stay on this for around a mile to a left turn onto a pretty obvious four-wheeler path. This section is rocky, ankles beware. Follow this section out to the edge of the Mesa, the drop of the edge is marked with a cairn. The trail down is somewhat traveled but the destination is obvious. Take the trail south to the old dump, that big white area, where your car is parked.

Flora & Fauna

Cactus flowers in spring are very pretty.
