“This trail heads over sand and red rock with great views of town and the surrounding hills/rock formations.”— Gabriel Erso
This trail feels significantly easier to me done in the north/west direction because of the way the rock under foot is fractured. When running in the south/east direction, it is fractured and jutting out at an angle toward you—making for slightly more tricky footwork.
The only rather difficult bit is around the middle section of the trail where it gets very curvy, and you have to dip steeply down into the canyon. This small section has loose rocks and should be approached slowly.
All-in-all, this is the best way to enjoy a quiet trail with great views and without driving far.
