There is water near the spot where the trail turns north.
This trail starts at the Slate Canyon parking lot and makes its way up to a meadow where it merges with Slide Canyon Trail #062. It's a tough climb, especially as the trail turns north and makes its way up out of the canyon. For part of this section, you'll be making your way up what is basically a rocky ditch. After this section, the trail gets much better. It's the only major trail in the area, so it's easy to follow.
