Do not descend Lion's Canyon Road as it will hit private property before it connects back up with Highway 64. This is a popular trail with mountain bikers. Be alert as you run.
East Ridge was completed in 2016 by the BLM and adds another great segment of trail to this growing system. A steady incline from the top of China Wall Trail will twist and turn its way north through narrow singletrack.
Finally, the trail turns west before connecting up with Lion's Canyon Road. Take the road southwest to the radio towers for some additional mileage and overlook, or turn around at the road and enjoy the run back down.
