Ledgy sandstone punctuated by smooth trail.

Description

LPS connects UPS to the top of the Porcupine Rim route.

If you're run north from UPS, the feeling of things begins to change a bit. The wavy slickrock you just experienced will be replaced with ledgy sandstone punctuated by smooth trail.

LPS gets a little closer to the rim of the canyon (if you can imagine) so its a good idea to pay attention while running this trail. The ledges and the occasional large step down make this trail a bit challenging.

LPS eventually gives way to the two track of Porcupine Rim Road and the start of one of the most famous trails in the world.
