“A short piece of singletrack alternative to the main park road.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
At the end, you'll plunge down into the wash for the South Prong of the Little Red River. The descent is steep and rocky with a side of ruts and loose surface. The steep climb out on the other side of the wash features loose surface with ruts and a side of rocks. To add to the fun, this was the only "wet" crossing in the park that had any water in it when I was there.
At the top of the climb, you can turn right to take a short path (another tricky descent) out to the main road or left to the Lower Canyon Trail.
