“This highest trail in the park provides spectacular views of the canyons below and is a fun challenge to undertake.”— Joseph Ellis
Note how the landscape and vegetation changes as you head west and north along the ridge to meet the Upper Canyon Trail before descending to Fern Cave, where you'll usually find a spring of cold water trickling from the rock and forming a small pool. Cool off and take a rest before heading out again.
During warmer months, start your run early to avoid the scorching mid-day sun and heat.
