Description

Top of the World is an intermediate trail overall with a few tougher drop downs on some slickrock. The best way to get there is by running out Alonzo's Trail east to west then turning north on Road 3545a and running out to the end of the road up a semi steep loose hill.

The trail starts out fairly flat with a mild rocky short climb to the top. Stop and take a picture as the views are nice from up there then prepare for a nice fun descent with a few surprise rockier sections.
